Pakistan and UAE have always been good friends. UAE has done major investments in Pakistan and it is also the Pakistan’s biggest trading partner in the Middle East.

Both of the countries are working on different projects with collaboration. And both are willing to strengthen their ties and transform this special relation and connection into Long-Term Strategic Economic Partnership.

It is the third time that both the leaders of their respective countries are meeting. This visit is more likely to change many things and Pakistan is going to get various benefits.

UAE had already promised Pakistan to give $3 billion to overcome the economic crises.

According to the sources, this month Pakistan is expecting to get oil worth $3.2 billion on negotiated payment facility.

The Crown Prince is also going to announce some more facilities for Pakistan to help its friend at the time of needs.

Moreover, the Islamic Development Bank’s International Islamic Trade Finance Corporation (ITFC) will give $1.5 billion loan to Pakistan to import LNG on negotiated payment facility.

Keep in mind that Sheikh Muhammad biz Zayed Al Nahyan is also a Deputy Supreme Commander of UAE Armed Forces.
