Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar is poised to embark on a pivotal three-day bilateral mission to the United Arab Emirates, commencing today and extending until November 28. The high-profile visit is set to culminate in a meeting with UAE President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, presenting a golden opportunity to fortify bilateral relations across diverse realms such as politics, economics, trade, investment, culture, defense, and people-to-people connections.

An official statement from the Foreign Office highlights that this diplomatic foray will not only strengthen the existing warm and enduring ties between Pakistan and the UAE but will also mark the signing of crucial Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs). These agreements are anticipated to encompass strategic sectors, including energy, port operations, wastewater treatment, food security, logistics, mining, aviation, and banking and financial services, signaling a collaborative leap toward mutual progress.

Prime Minister Kakar’s itinerary extends beyond official meetings, encapsulating participation in the celebrations of the UAE’s 52nd National Day and the 28th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 28) in Dubai. As reported by The News, the event is expected to host a staggering 90 heads of state, including Pakistan, and 7,000 representatives from across the globe. These eminent figures are converging for the National Day festivities on December 2, and the cancellation of the UAE Embassy’s National Day reception in Islamabad underscores the magnitude of the event.

Noteworthy is the parallel engagement with the UN Climate Change Conference of 2023, scheduled to unfold in the UAE from November 30 to December 12. The international climate change conference will extend its footprint in the UAE until December 15, offering a unique platform for global leaders to address and strategize on pressing climate issues.

In an exceptional gesture, the UAE president has extended an invitation to a high-level Pakistani delegation, led by Prime Minister Kakar and featuring caretaker ministers of trade, climate change, health, and finance. This delegation will oversee Pakistan’s participation in the grand celebrations scheduled for December 1 and 2, providing an avenue for the premier to engage in crucial discussions with world leaders and representatives from foreign countries.

As the curtains rise on this diplomatic spectacle, the resonance of Prime Minister Kakar’s visit extends far beyond mere protocol. It symbolizes a renewed commitment to bolstering ties between Pakistan and the UAE, transcending geographical boundaries for shared prosperity and cooperation.
