People to people links promote friendship between nations: Pak Envoy

COLOMBO—Acting High Commissioner of Pakistan in Sri Lanka Dr. Sarfraz Sipra on Wednesday emphasized that people-to-people contacts are an excellent way to promote understanding and friendship between the two nations.
He was talking to an eight member student delegation along with their teachers from The City School, Lahore led by Shazia Zahid, which is visiting Sri Lanka from May 24-28, 2017 under a Student Exchange Programme with Harcourts International School, Sri Lanka.
Dr. Sipra, while briefing the students, highlighted that, “Pakistan and Sri Lanka enjoy excellent relations and there is a strong will on both sides to further develop and promote these ties.”
He added that, “More frequent people-to-people contacts through enhanced student and faculty exchanges between learning institutions of the two countries would further stimulate this relationship.”
He assured that, “The High Commission would continue to patronize and support such initiatives.” During their stay in Sri Lanka, the students’ delegation would also visit Kandy and Galle. — DNA
