The Emirati minister made this statement during a meeting with the Chairperson of the Parliamentary Special Committee on Kashmir, Shehryar Afridi, who called on the former in Abu Dhabi.
The meeting was the second high-level contact between the two countries after the recent visit of the Foreign Minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The meeting mainly focused on further boosting bilateral relations between the two states.
Afridi conveyed Prime Minister Imran Khan’s “special message” to Sheikh Nahayan.
“Under PM Imran’s leadership, the ties between the two friendly states will further be cemented,” he said, adding that Pakistan and UAE have an excellent relationship.
“Pakistan and the UAE are tied in decades of fraternal ties, and overseas Pakistanis living here have provided further impetus to the historical and friendly ties between the two nations,” Sheikh Nahayan said.
He also praised the services of Pakistanis based in the UAE, saying that they have helped the kingdom develop into a modern state.
“The UAE has become a global village, and here Pakistanis along with people from all over the globe have been representing their culture well,” the Emirati minister added.
Furthermore, Sheikh Nahayan appreciated Afridi’s efforts in “activating Pakistan’s youth” on Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK), saying that it is the need of the hour.
He said: “I extend my good wishes to the Pakistani Prime Minister, Imran Khan, for all his future endeavors.”
