ISLAMABAD: President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev will arrive in Islamabad today on a two-day state visit to Pakistan, at the invitation of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
He will be accompanied by a high-level delegation, comprising the Foreign Minister, members of the Cabinet, senior government officials, businessmen, and media persons.
During the visit, the two sides will review the entire gamut of bilateral relations including cooperation in political, trade and economic, connectivity, education, culture, security, and defense domains.
Ch. Fawad said both Pakistan and Uzbekistan were also working to establish a rail link, which would boost trade with the Central Asian states. The minister said the Pak-Uzbek ties touched new heights since Shavkat Mirziyoyev had become head of the state as he was among the personal friends of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
He said the holding of the Uzbekistan National Dress and Fabric Exhibition here was a reflection of the growing linkages between the businessmen of the two countries.
Uzbekistan had historical significance for the Muslims of the sub-continent as Zaheer ud Din Babar had arrived from here in the sub-continent and established the great Mughal Empire, he added.
