ISLAMABAD, OCT 5 – Ambassador of the Republic of Kazakhstan to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan Mr. Akan Rakhmetullin met with Chief Executive Officer of Pakistan International Airlines, Air Marshal Arshad Malik. During the meeting, issues of strengthening cooperation between Kazakhstan and Pakistan were discussed.
