The President felicitated the Indian envoy and hoped that he would work for further strengthening bilateral ties.

Bisaria who along with his wife arrived in Islamabad on 12 December to take up the new position, had a brief meeting with President Hussain and exchanged views on different issues of bilateral importance.
