ISLAMABAD: Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhry has said Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan was in Pakistan for the last three days and he returned to his country from the federal capital on Sunday.

In reaction to some media reports saying that the Crown Prince came to Pakistan on Sunday and returned to his country after two hours stay here, he said in a bitter tone that every pseudo-journalist here claims to be a foreign policy expert reporter even if he had never had a look at the Foreign Office.

In two different tweets, Fawad Ch said all tours of foreign dignitaries are pre-planned, and the visit of Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed was also such an important tour. The minister said Abu Dhabi played a crucial role in Afghanistan talks and helped Pakistan overcome its balance-of-payment crisis. Pakistan enjoys a peculiar position in the Arab world, he added.

Fawad Chaudhry said the media must verify before airing or publishing any news item. He said the real threat to the Freedom of Press was from the pseudo-journalists. APP adds: Meanwhile, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Media Iftikhar Durrani said that the one-day official visit of the Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed to Pakistan was concluded as per schedule.

In a press statement, he said with the Crown Prince’s visit, the bilateral ties between the UAE and Pakistan would be further strengthened and would add new dimension to these relations. All the events of the Crown Prince’s visit were held as per schedule, he added.

Talking about certain media speculations, Durrani advised the media persons to consider the importance of the bilateral ties between the two countries and the significance of the visit and desist from making unnecessary speculations on unfounded basis.
