While conveying his best wishes for the Tunisian leadership, the president said that the people of Pakistan wish the brotherly people of Tunisia, peace, progress and prosperity.
The president also expressed his best wishes for the outgoing ambassador and wished him well in his new assignments. He expressed the hope that Ambassador Bourehla would continue to work for the promotion of Pak-Tunisia relations.
The outgoing ambassador thanked the president and the government of Pakistan for the support he was extended during his tenure as ambassador.
