Extending Greetings 
Speaking on the occasion, PM Shehbaz Sharif said the bilateral ties will grow. On behalf of the government and the people of Pakistan, PM Shehbaz extended greetings on this auspicious occasion.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson last month spoke to Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on the phone and welcomed the United Kingdom and Pakistan’s strong partnership over the past 75 years. They agreed to strengthen those ties further and boost trade and investment.

Expressing Gratitude
The top envoy expressed gratitude to the participants in Urdu language and renewed the UK's resolve to cement the ties with Pakistan.

He paid tribute to the Queen and shed light on her lifelong services, saying: “The Queen’s 70 years of servant leadership show a remarkable record of integrity, hard work and selflessness that are needed more than ever today. 

“We are honoured to celebrate her Birthday, her Platinum Jubilee and also 75 years of deep UK-Pakistan relations.”

The Pakistan Monument in Islamabad was lit up tonight (Wednesday) in purple, the colour of the platinum jubilee celebrations. The event also underlined Pakistan and the UK’s 75-year partnership – at the heart of which is our people to people links, a 1.6 million Pakistani diaspora in the UK, 500,000 approximate annual visits in both directions, and around 100,000 British nationals based in Pakistan.
