KARACHI: Bolstering diplomatic and trade relations, the United Arab Emirates Consul General, Bakhit Atiq Al-Rumiti, assured Pakistan of unwavering support during challenging times.

He emphasized that, just as Pakistan has been a steadfast ally to the UAE, the UAE remains committed to standing by Pakistan in times of difficulty.

He acknowledged the significant contribution of the Pakistani community in the UAE to the nation’s development and highlighted the opening of a special visa center in Karachi to better assist the large population of Pakistanis in the UAE.
