ISLAMABAD: The newly appointed ambassador of Denmark to Pakistan Lis Rosenholm has said her job as ambassador of Denmark to Pakistan would be to further promote and strengthen bilateral relations.

The ambassador-designate expressed these views in her message upon arrival in Islamabad.

She said, she would like to express her utmost appreciation for the Pakistani people who have given her a warm welcome. ‘It is truly an honor for me to take up my assignment as the Ambassador Designate of Denmark to Pakistan’.

The ambassador –designate said the political, economic and cultural relations between Denmark and Pakistan are longstanding, reliable and forward-looking. One of the most important tasks of the Royal Danish Embassy in Islamabad is to bring our interests together in a fair and mutual dialogue.

Strong international cooperation is important as ever. I aim to expand mutual-beneficial opportunities for Pakistan and Denmark in the recovery from the coronavirus crisis promoting a sustainable and resilient economy in closer harmony with the natural world. I will explore how Denmark and Pakistan can work closer in health, renewable energy, water, food, climate change, gender equality – just to mention a few areas.

She added, she believed that it was essential to build a wide range of partnerships to enhance ties between our countries – across our governments, businesses, academia, artists; community based organizations and not least people. We will always base our contacts on mutual respect, understanding and open dialogue.

The youth holds the keys to a better and more sustainable future for all in their hands, not least in Pakistan. To strengthen dialogue with the Pakistani youth, we will launch a number of initiatives.

‘Together with my excellent Embassy team, I look forward to engaging with you in developing and strengthening the important ties between Pakistan and Denmark’ Ambassador Lis added.
