We will try to make the centre to work at full capacity. The Pakistani Cultural Center which is functioning in our university is in close contact with other centres. I believe that together with the Ambassador we will do our best to make our work more successful. The friendly and brotherly people of Pakistan are always with us. We have witnessed this during the 44-day Victory War. We will never forget Pakistan's support."
