Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan, along with a high-level delegation, arrived in Malaysia on February 3 for a two-day official visit.

Upon arrival at Bunga Raya Complex, Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Khan was received by Malaysia’s Minister for Defence, Mohamad Sabu, and senior officials. Malaysia’s High Commissioner of Pakistan, Amna Baloch, and officers of the High Commission were also present.

Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Minister for Planning Asad Umar, Advisor on Commerce Abdul Razzak Dawood and Foreign Secretary Sohail Mahmood accompanied the prime minister.

Khan is visiting Kuala Lumpur on the invitation of Malaysia’s Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.

According to the Foreign Office, the two prime ministers will have a private conversation, followed by delegation-level talks. They will witness signing of important agreements and memorandums of understanding, as well as have a joint press stakeout.

Prime Minister Imran Khan will also address a think-tank event organised by the Institute of Strategic and International Studies of Malaysia.

“The prime minister’s visit is another sign of robust engagement between Pakistan and Malaysia, and the shared commitment to further fortify the strategic partnership between the two countries,” the Foreign Office said.
