The development was made during a meeting between Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi with his UAE counterpart Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan in Abu Dhabi. During the meeting, Sheikh Abdullah briefed his Pakistani counterpart on the extension of the loan repayment period.

“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.

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.
