Australia to assist Pakistan in agriculture, dairy sector: Heward

imageAustralian High Commissioner in Pakistan Peter Heward has said that his country is keen to assist Pakistan in unleashing huge agricultural and dairy potential.

In an interview with Radio Pakistan, he said Pakistan not only meet its own requirements of food grain and dairy products but could also generate huge surplus for export if modern techniques were adopted.

He particularly referred to value addition in dairy sector and said Australia could help the country bring about a white revolution.

The Australian High Commissioner said Pakistan has legitimate concerns about post-2014 withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan as it is already hosting a huge number of Afghan refugees.

He said Australia and other countries would continue to help Afghanistan and Pakistan in meeting challenges during that phase.

He said Australia would also continue to extend cooperation to Pakistan in addressing the challenge of extremism and terrorism as the issue is directly linked to the peace and stability of peace, the region and beyond.

He said Government and people of Australia acknowledge sacrifices offered by Pakistan in the war against terror and the need for continued support of the country in future.
