Chinese Ambassador Yao Jing on Friday congratulated the people of Pakistan on its 74th Independence Day and hoped that the country would enjoy peace and prosperity.

"I use this opportunity to present my best wishes to the whole Pakistan nation on your Independence Day. My best wishes to our brotherly nation of Pakistan. May Pakistan enjoy peace and prosperity!" he said in a video message.

Similarly, the UK High Commission in a tweet said that the friendship between the two countries was growing stronger every year.

“A happy 73rd anniversary of independence of Pakistan. From cricket rivalry to trade deals to working together against coronavirus - the friendship between our two countries grows stronger every year.”

On the other hand, Australian High Commissioner Geoffrey Shaw said his country had been a steadfast friend of Pakistan. “Our partnerships in education, trade, development, defence and our sports and cultural ties will only continue to strengthen.”
