Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Meshal Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah and Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani have agreed to visit Pakistan on the invitation of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, state-run Radio Pakistan reported on Sunday.

According to the report, the development came during two separate meetings Shehbaz held in Islamabad with Kuwait’s Ambassador to Pakistan Nassar Abdulrahman Jasser Almutairi and Qatar’s Ambassador to Pakistan Ali Mubarak Ali Essa Al-Khater.

“In his meeting with the prime minister, the Kuwaiti ambassador presented a letter from the emir of Kuwait expressing his intention to visit Pakistan on mutually agreed dates,” the report said.

After receiving the letter, the premier highlighted his recent interaction with the Kuwait emir on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum’s special meeting in Riyadh last month.
