ISLAMABAD: Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, accompanied by a high-level delegation, left Islamabad on Thursday following a daylong visit in which he had meetings with Prime Minister Imran Khan and Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
The crown prince was seen off at the Nur Khan Airbase by Federal Minister for Power, Petroleum & Natural Resources Omar Ayub, DawnNewsTV reported.
Earlier, PM Imran Khan had received the crown prince at the Nur Khan Airbase alongside various government officials, including Omar Ayub.
Setting aside protocol, Prime Minister Imran personally drove the crown prince, who on Tuesday was announced by Russia Today TV as the Arab world’s most influential leader of 2019, from the airbase. This, however, is not the first time the premier has gotten behind the wheel for a foreign dignitary.
The crown prince held a one-on-one meeting with PM Imran followed by a luncheon hosted by the premier.
In a tweet via his official account, Sheikh Mohamed said he met his “friend Prime Minister Imran Khan” and discussed “regional and international issues of mutual interest as well as ways to enhance bilateral ties”.
