The EU Parliamentary delegation in a meeting with Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani commended Pakistan’s pivotal role in the fight against terrorism.

The members of the delegation also undertook to proactively support Pakistan’s case for greater market access to the European markets and called for enhanced coordination and engagements between the two sides for sorting out the trade related issues, a statement from the PM office said.

The delegation assured the Prime Minister of their Parliament’s complete support in early recovery and reconstruction phases of the flood affected areas.

The Prime Minister also called for European Parliament’s support in institutionalizing Pakistan-EU Summit mechanism and for fast tracking the mutual cooperation interests by chalking out a Five Year Engagement Plan for the commencement of Ministerial Level’s Strategic Dialogue between the two sides.

He stated that Pakistan’s side was looking forward to an early visit of Baroness Kathrine Ashton, EU High Representative for Common, Foreign and Security Policy. He underscored the need for enhanced Parliamentary exchanges between Pakistan and EU for creation of better understanding of each other’s point of view on issues of mutual interests.
