German Missions in Pakistan celebrate 30 years of German unity day

German Embassy Islamabad hosted a virtual concert with Pakistani singer Zoe Viccaji on German Unity Day

This year Germany celebrated the 30th anniversary of Reunification or Unity Day on October 3rd, marking 30 years since east and west came together – major event in German history.

In Pakistan, the German missions refrained from the usual German national day festivities this year as a precautionary measure in the pandemic.

Instead, the German Embassy Islamabad and the German Consulate General in Karachi decided to go online and hosted a virtual concert with famous Pakistani singer Zoe Viccaji on Saturday, October 3, 2020 which was live-streamed on the Embassy’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.

In order to share their joy about German reunification and as a signal of German-Pakistani friendship, the German Embassy donated food packages to needy families of different communities in and around Islamabad in the course of the week leading up to German national day.

On the eve of the German Unity Day Ambassador Bernhard Schlagheck and Consul General Holger Ziegeler underlined: “Celebrating the 30th anniversary of German unity is a very special moment for Germans.
Just like German reunification would not have been possible without the support of Germany’s international partners, we will only be able to overcome the consequences of the pandemic by working together effectively as an international community. Germany and Pakistan will continue their long-standing and trustful cooperation.”

Pakistan and Germany have close and multifaceted bilateral relations. Next year, both countries will celebrate the 70 th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties. With a volume of 120 million euros for development cooperation and 6.1 million euros for humanitarian aid, Germany stood by the people of Pakistan in these difficult pandemic times and will continue to do so.
