Besides bilateral matters, views will be exchanged on key regional and international issues.

The Prime Minister will also participate in a joint ‘Trade and Investment Conference’ aimed at promoting trade and investment between the two countries.

A number of MoUs to enhance bilateral cooperation will be signed during the visit.

Pakistan and Sri Lanka have maintained close, cordial and mutually supportive relations and the two countries share the commonality of views on a wide range of international and regional issues.

Prime Minister Imran Khan Monday reiterated his resolve to uphold transparency in the democratic system as his politics was aimed at serving the masses and working for the betterment of coming generations.

He was chairing a meeting of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa cabinet and PTI’s members of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly here at the Governor House. KP Governor Shah Farman and Chief Minister Mahmood Khan were also present on the occasion.

During the meeting, a detailed presentation was given to the prime minister on the ongoing development projects across the provinces, especially in the merged tribal districts. The overall political situation and party matters were also discussed.

The prime minister said the political manifesto of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was to serve the masses wholeheartedly and without any discrimination.

Unfortunately, he said, some people joined politics to make money rather than serve the people. “A nation is destined to doom when it loses morality and can not distinguish between right and wrong”.
