Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has extended thanks to President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, for pardoning 572 Pakistani prisoners on the occasion of the Holy Month of Ramadan.

A statement issued by the office of Pakistan's Prime Minister said that Pakistan appreciates this initiative, which would contribute to enhancing friendly bilateral relations.

The Speaker of the National Assembly of Pakistan, Asad Qaiser, has characterised his country's relations with UAE as a model to be copied for "steadily growing ties" across multiple domains, hailing the significant support provided by the UAE to accelerate the economic development and social care drive in his country.

The top parliamentarian, at a meeting with UAE Ambassador to Pakistan, Hamad Obaid Ibrahim Salem Al Zaabi, spoke high of the UAE's assistance for the education, health and infrastructure sectors in Pakistan, recalling the noble efforts made by late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to bolster bilateral relations.

He described the recent visit to Pakistan by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, as "historic and reflective" of the longstanding relations between the two countries.
