He noted that overseas Pakistanis have always made Pakistan proud through their achievements and dedication to their motherland, urging them to work with greater enthusiasm and dedication for the continued peace and prosperity of Pakistan and Bahrain.

The ceremony was attended by a large number of Pakistani nationals and expatriates, as well as representatives of the Bahraini government and the diplomatic corps. The participants expressed their pride in being Pakistanis and pledged to continue to work hard for the progress and prosperity of their homeland.
