AMMAN — Pakistan celebrates its independence day on Sunday. It was established in 1947 as a separate homeland for the Muslims of South Asia, according to a statement released by the Pakistani embassy in Amman on Saturday.

"Today, Pakistan stands as a nuclear state with a prosperous economy," the embassy said, highlighting the country's role in fighting terrorism.
