Prime Minister of Pakistan Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has received UAE Ambassador to Pakistan Hamad Obaid Ibrahim Salem Al Zaabi at the Prime Minister’s Office in Islamabad.

He added that this support reflects the strength of ties between the two countries and expressed his satisfaction with the increase in the trade volume between Pakistan and the UAE. Abbasi pointed out that a large number of Pakistanis residing in the UAE are playing an important role in the country’s development and prosperity and contribute significantly to the national economy.

The Pakistani Prime Minister conveyed his greetings on behalf of the government and people of Pakistan to the UAE leadership and wished the UAE people more progress and prosperity.
