On March 23, 2024, the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in Ukraine held a solemn ceremony of raising the national flag on the occasion of Pakistan Day.

Every year on March 23, Pakistanis celebrate the adoption of the Pakistan Resolution of 1940 by the All India Muslim League in Lahore on the creation of an independent state for Muslims.

Since then, the struggle for the creation of Pakistan intensified and only seven years after the adoption of the Pakistan Resolution on August 14, 1947, Pakistan emerged.

After the reading of the Holy Quran, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, H.E. Major General (Retired) Nadir Khan raised the national flag during the performance of the national anthem of Pakistan.

Messages from the President of Pakistan Mr. Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Mr. Shahbaz Sharif and Minister for Foreign Affairs of Pakistan Mr. Mohammad Ishaq Dar were also read out.

The ceremony concluded with a prayer for the well-being and prosperity of the people of Pakistan, the Muslim Ummah and humanity, as well as for the return of peace and prosperity to Ukraine.

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan recognized the independence of Ukraine on December 31, 1991. On March 16, 1992, diplomatic relations between Ukraine and Pakistan were established. The Embassy of Pakistan has been operating in Kyiv since October 1997.
