London Mayor Sadiq Khan arrives in Pakistan

A reporter was caught on camera today asking London Mayor Sadiq Khan "what does it feel like coming home?" as he spoke to media in Pakistan.

Sharing images from the trip, he tweeted: "Honour to visit the most sacred place in the world for the Sikh faith - the lovely Golden Temple here in Amritsar, India".

Earlier, Khan held meetings with business leaders and Indian government ministers as a part of his visit to Mumbai, Delhi and Amritsar in India.

The BBC said that many had referred to it as a "homecoming" including Punjab's chief minister Shehbaz Sharif.

He arrived in Lahore after a three-day visit to India.

PM Abbasi said Pakistan gives great importance to its close and cooperative relations with the United Kingdom especially in the area of trade and investment.

He briefed the Mayor on the excellent opportunities for trade and investment in Pakistan.

PM Abbasi welcomed him and said that every Pakistani is proud of his election as Mayor of London and prays for his success.

Commenting on the Mayor's response, Ms Pidgeon said: "Sadiq Khan likes to boast about the start of the London Overground night service but he can not hide away from the fact Londoners have always been promised a Boxing Day service on the London Overground".

Sadiq Khan said that Pakistan and London share a long and unique history that has had a profound influence on shaping our respective societies, economies, and cultures.
