LONDON: Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the leader of PML-N, is set to embark on a tour of several countries including Saudi Arabia before his planned return to Pakistan.
Media reports indicate that Sharif has outlined a strategy to visit four nations, with preparations for these visits currently underway.
The primary objective of this tour is to secure substantial investments for Pakistan, which is grappling with a financial crisis. Sharif intends to leverage these investments as part of his election campaign strategy.
Sharif is expected to initiate his journey with a visit to Saudi Arabia next week, during which he will also undertake the Umrah pilgrimage. Subsequently, he plans to visit the United Arab Emirates, followed by a brief stopover in Qatar.
Sources have revealed that an essential visit to China is also on Sharif’s itinerary before his return to Pakistan. His team has been in contact with Chinese officials, and China has expressed a willingness to collaborate with Sharif, potentially resulting in significant investment announcements.
