Prime Minister Imran Khan embarked on his second official visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Sunday, amid reports that the latter is ready to extend financial aid to Pakistan.

The premier was invited by Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan, who welcomed him at an official reception at the Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi.

During his trip, the prime minister held a meeting with his counterpart Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed.

The premier's itinerary, however, had more than just official meetings; he also visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Wahat Al Karama, a permanent tribute to Emirati soldiers.
