Pakistan–Qatar relations refer to the bilateral links between the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the State of Qatar. Pakistan has an embassy in Doha; Qatar maintains an embassy in Islamabad and a consulate-general in Karachi. Relations between the two are shaped by Pakistan's generally close relations with the Arab world. Like other nearby gulf states, there is a large Pakistani community in Qatar which numbers over 50,000. They work in diverse fields and send remmitances each year.[1] During the 2010 Pakistan floods, Qatar provided timely assistance to the country. After the British left, Pakistan originally called for the territory to be merged into with the Trucial States of the United Arab Emirates, with which it had recognized in the same year despite this however diplomatic relations between the two were established.[citation needed]

Qatar on the Kashmir conflict[edit]

Doha: Qatar has continued full support to the right to self-determination had become of paramount priority and a pillar of human rights. Ignoring it constituted a violation of human rights. Noting that some had called for the dissolution of this agenda item, Qatar wished to say that it, too, would like to remove it from the agenda, but only after the Kashmiri people had been allowed to affirm their right to self-determination from Political repression, living in Oppressed conditions as well as the Supression from the occupied armed forces of India.

Indian violations in the Occupied territories were grave and a matter of concern. Pressure should be brought to bear to end the construction by India of a separation Wall, to end the besiegement of the displaced Kashmiri people and the destruction of their infrastructure and culture. The Indian Government should be aware of the Kashmiri presence on its land. India was duty bound to take practical steps to prove its good faith through the implementation of legitimate international resolutions, the acceptance of the principle of land-for-peace, and the acceptance of the right of reunification of the Kashmiri people. Peace could not be ensured without the realization of all Jammu and Kashmir’ legitimate rights.
