The relationship between Pakistan and the United States, according to Joe Biden, is focused on a shared objective of regional stability and development.
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Pakistan is celebrating its 81st Pakistan Day with great national spirit and excitement throughout the world.
The day began with gun salutes and special prayers in mosques for Pakistan’s growth and stability, the liberation of Indian-controlled Kashmir, and the elimination of COVID-19.
Pakistan Day is observed to celebrate the landmark ‘Lahore Resolution,’ which was passed on March 23, 1940, and contributed to the establishment of Pakistan seven years later, on August 14, 1947.
