ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday left for Malaysia on a two-day official visit.
He was accompanied by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Finance Minister Asad Umer, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and Adviser on Commerce Abdul Razak Dawood.
This is the first state visit by any foreign leader since Dr Mahathir Mohamad assumed office in May 2018 and Prime Minister Imran Khan’s first bilateral visit to Malaysia.
The two prime ministers will have a one-to-one meeting, followed by delegation-level talks. Pakistan and Malaysia enjoy warm brotherly relations founded in mutual respect, friendship and understanding reinforced by strong cultural and religious affinities.
The visit of the Prime Minister would provide an opportunity to further cement the existing friendly and cordial bilateral relations by enhancing economic, trade and commercial ties, for our mutual benefit.
