During his meeting with the Qatari PM, PM Imran discusses bilateral relations and increasing cooperation between the two countries.

Qatari PM Al Thani gave a dinner in the honour of the Pakistani prime minister, who was accompanied by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and others.

Upon his arrival at Hamad International Airport in Doha, the prime minister was received by Qatari Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Soltan bin Saad Al-Muraikhi upon arrival.

During his visit, PM Imran will also meet the Emir of Qatar. Issues of mutual interest will be discussed during the meeting, according to Qatari ambassador Saqr Bin Mubarak Al Mansouri.

The prime minister will also discuss the issue of exporting Pakistani manpower to Qatar.
