LONDON, Oct 31: The President of the Republic of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga, called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif here on Wednesday and discussed matters of mutual interest with him.

Both leaders vowed to work closely on promotion of bilateral trade, avoidance of double taxation and social sector development.

Ms Jahjaga congratulated Mr Sharif on assuming the office of prime minister for a third time and invited him to visit Kosovo which he accepted. Prime Minister Sharif also extended an invitation to Ms Jahjaga to visit Pakistan. The Kosovo president agreed to pay the visit.

Ms Jahjaga sought the prime minister’s support for getting membership of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation for her country and the prime minister assured her of Pakistan’s support in this regard.

Mr Sharif told her that the memories of his visit to Kosovo were still fresh in his mind. He said his government was ready to work with Kosovo in areas of economy and social sector where both countries could complement each other.—APP
