“FM Qureshi lauded UAE’s consistent support to Pakistan and welcomed the announcement of rolling back payment of $ 2 billion, which symbolizes the depth and strength of bilateral ties,” said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement.

Back in March, it was reported the government expects a rollover of $1 billion by the United Arab Emirates (UAE). A finance ministry official on condition of anonymity confirmed to Business Recorder that the return of the amount to the UAE was due on 12 March 2021.

As per MoFA, SM Qureshi and his UAE counterpart discussed expanding Pakistan, UAE ties in diverse fields including trade, investment, infrastructure development, energy, technology and human resource development.

FM Qureshi thanked UAE FM Abdullah for aiding the Pakistani diaspora, particularly the workforce, during the challenging times of the coronavirus pandemic.
