"It would a mistake on part of India to view Pakistan with the eye of pre-partition".

The president said Pakistan overcame the challenge of terrorism with unprecedented scarifies.

The Exxon Company is engaged in exploration activity in the Pakistani sea, prime minister informed.

Sources said last week India conveyed to the Pakistan High Commission that it will not send any representative to the reception if Hurriyat leaders are invited to it. After a flag-raising ceremony, Pakistan's national anthem was played and Pakistani students took stage to sing traditional songs in their native dress.

Mentioning how Pakistan has recently gone through challenging times, he added, however: "There is indeed no force on earth that can undo Pakistan".
