President Arif Alvi has called for promotion of the national language for the unity and solidarity of the nation.
The president expressed his views during an event organized by the department of the promotion of the national language in Islamabad.
President Alvi said that Urdu is our national, historical, and literary asset, adding that all efforts should be focused on promoting it in every field of human endeavor.
He said it was necessary to master the English language to meet the modern-day challenges, but it should not be done by relegating Urdu to the background.
