The United States Sunday greeted Pakistan on its 75th Independence Day, saying that he was confident that the relationship between the two countries would continue to grow.

“In addition to 75 years of independence, this year also marks 75 years of diplomatic relations between the United States and Pakistan,” US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement.

“We enjoy robust cooperation in many sectors, from the tens of thousands of Pakistani exchange students who have come to the United States to the 77 million COVID-19 vaccine doses we have committed to Pakistan through COVAX.

Blinken said that he was confident that the relationship between the two countries would grow and that the United States would continue to be Pakistan’s largest export destination.

“As we commemorate our 75th anniversary of diplomatic relations, let us resolve to renew and strengthen our partnership for the next 75 years and beyond,” he added.
