PAKISTAN

Officially the Islamic Republic of Pakistan (Urduاسلامی جمہوریۂ پاكستان‎ ), is a country in South Asia with a population exceeding 199 million people. It is the sixth most populous country and with an area covering 881,913 km2 (340,509 sq mi), it is the 36th largest country in the world in terms of area. Pakistan has a 1,046-kilometre (650 mi) coastline along the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman in the south and is bordered by India to the east, Afghanistan to the west, Iran to the southwest and China in the far northeast respectively. It is separated from Tajikistan by Afghanistan's narrow Wakhan Corridor in the north, and also shares a maritime border with Oman.


These two perfectly postmarked covers sent by my good friend Patrik from Karachi. He is a philatelist too. The covers posted on December 03, 2013 and I received on January 20, 2014. Thank You Patrik for the beautiful covers.
