The world is well aware of the glorious history of Pak-UAE relations

Dr. Rasheed Ahmed Khan (IR Expert): The world is well aware of the glorious history of Pak-UAE relations. The history stands witness to the support both nations have extended to each other in thick and thin. Despite a huge geographical distance between them, the unity of Islam symbolizes the ties between both the nations. Pakistan was one of the first countries in the world to extend recognition to the newly born union named United Arab Emirates. The UAE is also hosting 1.7 million Pakistanis with honour and dignity who are not only a bridge between the two countries but also pride of Pakistan. The UAE has extended generous humanitarian assistance, support for better health and education to Pakistan whenever required. The founder of UAE Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was keen to give an impetus to the bilateral relations between the two countries from the very beginning. It was further strengthened and patronized by H.H. Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Bilateral cooperation between Pakistan and UAE in various fields is increasing with particular focus on accelerating cooperation and building partnerships in areas encompassing investments, economic development, energy, infrastructure and agriculture. The death of UAE’s President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan is a big loss as the country has lost a visionary leader.
