PM Imran Khan reaches Doha on two-day visit

DOHA: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday reached Doha on a two-day official visit at the invitation of Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani.

Federal Minister for Finance Asad Umar, Federal Minister for Petroleum Chaudhry Ghulam Sarwar Khan and other high officials are accompanying the Prime Minister in the visit.

Qatar’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Soltan bin Saad al-Muraikhi received Prime Minister Imran and his delegation at Doha airport.

The PM will meet the Qatari emir and prime minister during the visit. During his meeting, the Prime Minister will discuss matters of mutual interest.

The prime minister will also discuss the matter of exporting labour to Qatar.

In December last year, Qatar had opened a visa facilitation centre in Islamabad for swift processing of visas of members of the Pakistan workforce wishing to work in Qatar. Doha has also promised 100,000 jobs for Pakistani workers, and the government is in talks with the Qatari government to adjust skilled members of the labour force returning from Saudi Arabia.
