60th anniversary Treaty of Rome EU Ambassador Jean-François Cautain Mrs Sonia Cautain reception

A large number of guests from every walk of life including the government, the media, diplomatic community as well as public representatives joined the celebration to mark the 60th anniversary of signing of the Treaty of Rome at the EU Residence in Islamabad on 28 March. Speaking at the event, Ambassador of the European Union to Pakistan H.E. Mr Jean-François Cautain informed the guests that in 1957, sixty years ago, the Heads of State and government of Belgium, Italy, France, Germany Luxemburg and the Netherlands, gathered in Rome to sign a document that laid down the foundations of Europe as we know it today. Back then sounded like wishful thinking. But actually it marked the beginning of the longest period of peace our continent Europe, has ever known. "Whatever events may bring in the future, one thing is certain: the EU will continue to promote international peace and security, development cooperation, human rights and responds to humanitarian crises, all elements at the heart of our foreign and security policy," he added.
