Kaira said that Pakistan and Somalia had strong cultural relations which needed to be strengthened more.

“There is a huge potential of cooperation between both the countries which is needed to explore further,” he maintained.

He urged experts on both sides to play their role to chalk-out possibilities of mutual cooperation to enhance bilateral relations.

The advisor extended his gratitude to the UNDP for making the ministerial study tour of Somalian delegation to Pakistan.
