Pakistan is dedicated to further developing its ties with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in all areas of mutual interest, according to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
He discussed these ideas with UAE Ambassador to Pakistan Hamad Obaid Ibrahim Salem Al-Zaabi on Friday. According to him, Pakistan and the UAE have had strong fraternal connections for 50 years that are based on shared values, beliefs, and cultures. The UAE was Pakistan’s biggest trading partner in the Middle East and a significant source of investment.
Al-Zaabi has visited the flood-affected areas in Pakistan frequently and has taken a serious interest in providing help to the country. It was recalled by sources that the ambassador’s efforts led to assistance for Pakistan from other nations besides just the UAE.
Along with discussing regional developments and topics of relevance to both parties, the ambassador spoke with the prime minister. The prime minister reportedly expressed his best wishes for the ongoing development of the amiable people of the UAE and emphasised the value Pakistan placed on its fraternal connections with those countries, according to official statements.
Shehbaz Sharif emphasised both the government’s responsiveness to the critical situation and the significant destruction brought on by floods throughout Pakistan. In this regard, he expressed appreciation for the UAE’s establishment of an aviation corridor to transport humanitarian aid and the relief help it gave to those affected by the floods.
According to the reports, Al-Zaabi mobilised all of his country’s facilities in Pakistan to offer flood victims every kind of assistance. It is known that the UAE is one of the countries offering flood victims the most aid.
