ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday made a telephone call to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of the UAE and exchanged views on bilateral relations and regional developments.

During the call, PM Khan and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed discussed ties between the two countries and ways to further develop them to serve the common interests of both countries and peoples.

The two sides also exchanged views on regional and international developments, as well as issues of mutual interest.

In December last year, UAE announced that it would deposit $3 billion into Pakistan’s foreign currency account to help it successfully overcome international payment crisis and to avoid a stringent International Monetary Fund (IMF) deal.

“The UAE has announced its intention to deposit US$3 billion (equivalent to AED11 billion) in the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) to support the financial and monetary policy of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan,” the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) said in a statement published by WAM news agency.

“It (UAE) will deposit the said amount in the coming days,” the statement said.
