The United Arab Emirates' Special Representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan Ali Mohammed Hamad Al Shamsi has reiterated the country's support to Pakistan's efforts to overcome its difficulties and to fight terrorism and extremism.

Al Shamsi made the remarks after a meeting with the Pakistani Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi in Islamabad on Thursday.

"The talks with His Excellency the Foreign Minister came as continuation of the discussions made during the meeting of special representatives to Pakistan and Afghanistan, held last Tuesday in Abu Dhabi. We also touched on issues of mutual interest, including bilateral relations, the upcoming Friends of Democratic Pakistan (FODP) Public-Private Partnership Conference at Dubai in January 26, 2010, counter-terrorism and efforts towards accelerating the process of reintegration and development in Afghanistan," he said.

Also discussed were Pakistan's relations with the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

Qureshi expressed his profound gratitude to the UAE Government, especially HH Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE Foreign Minister, for taking the initiative of holding the Public Private Partnership Conference in Dubai, which, he said, would go a long way in assisting Pakistan in its socio-economic development.

The Pakistani Foreign Minister also greatly appreciated the UAE engagement in the reconstruction of Swat and Malakand.

Al Shamsi is scheduled to visit Afghanistan to meet with the President Hamed Karzai, the Foreign Minister and senior officials.

He underlined that the national consensus against terrorism and militancy would be difficult to hold if our efforts towards rehabilitating and reconstructing the affected areas failed to deliver.

The Associated Press of Pakistan said that the Special Representative thanked the Foreign Minister for attending the recently-held Special Representatives meeting in Abu Dhabi. He assured the Foreign Minister that Sheikh Abdullah was exploring all possible avenues to make the Public-Private Partnership Conference a big success.

The Foreign Minister particularly highlighted that Pakistan could play a very useful role in the reconstruction of Afghanistan, given our contiguity and sharing of common culture and language with the country. The two agreed that there was huge potential in sectors like
