Khan met with Mr. Seishiro Eto, Member of the House of Representatives in the Diet (Japanese Parliament) and Chairman of the Japan-Pakistan Parliamentary Friendship League (JPPFL). Ambassador Asad expressed his earnest desire to further strengthen bilateral ties between Pakistan and Japan, particularly parliamentary exchanges as the two countries celebrate 65 years of the establishment of diplomatic relations. He apprised Mr. Eto of the trade and investment opportunities created in Pakistan in the wake of improved security environment and sustained economic turn around and expressed the hope that Japanese investors, with history of engagement in Pakistan, would avail this opportunity.

Agreeing with the Ambassador that the visits by respective Parliamentarians were important to build bridges of peace and understanding, he underlined the great importance of people-to-people contacts at all levels in society that would deepen cooperation and partnership between the two countries.
