UAE President Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s day-long visit to Islamabad was reportedly postponed on Monday due to bad weather.
Reports cited the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) as saying: “Due to weather conditions, President HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s visit to the friendly Islamic Republic of Pakistan scheduled for today has been postponed to a later date.”
The president arrived in Rahim Yar Khan last week on Wednesday and was received by the PM.
He was scheduled to hold talks with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on issues of mutual interest, economy, trade, and investment, besides regional and global situation.
