THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN

Diplomatic relations between Brunei Darussalam and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan were established on 9 February 1984. Brunei Darussalam established its High Commission in Islamabad in 1992, while Pakistan set up its High Commission in Bandar Seri Begawan in 1985.

There have been a number of exchanges of visits between both sides. His Majesty the Sultan made two State Visits to Pakistan (1992 and 2004).
