Prime Minister Imran Khan today said that Pakistan deeply valued its close and friendly relations with Sri Lanka which had been nurtured over decades through a continuous interaction at bilateral, regional and international levels.
PM office media wing in a press release said that Prime Minister was talking to a Sri Lankan delegation that called on him to gift eye corneas to visually impaired people in Pakistan.
The initiative was taken by the Sri Lankan High Commission in Islamabad, in collaboration with the Sri Lankan eye donation society.
The Prime Minister while appreciating this gesture said that it was a great initiative to provide corneas on a humanitarian basis which would enable people to regain their eyesight.
The Sri Lankan delegation thanked the prime minister for receiving them.
