ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif will undertake an official visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) next week on the invitation of UAE President Muhammad bin Zayed Al-Nahyan.

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Senator Ishaq Dar, Chief Minister Punjab Maryam Nawaz, federal ministers dealing with economy and a delegation of businessmen will accompany the prime minister to the UAE.

UAE Ambassador in Pakistan Ibrahim Salem Al-Zaabi has returned to the UAE for assisting in fine-tuning arrangements for Shehbaz’s visit. Pakistan’s Ambassador in the UAE Syed Faisal Niaz Tirmizi has told this scribe that the visit would be beneficial for both the countries.
