Denmark–Pakistan relations are the foreign relations that are established between Pakistan and Denmark. Pakistan has an embassy in Copenhagen.[citation needed] Denmark also has an embassy in Islamabad; it suffered a suicide car bomb attack in June 2008, killing five Pakistanis and one Dane.[1]

Roughly 20,000 Pakistanis live and work in Denmark, making them the country's fifth-largest non-Western community. Six Pakistani immigrants/descendants of immigrants have seats on local parliaments and councils, the second-highest number of any immigrant group.[2]
