He hoped that royal couples visit would further promote bilateral relations between two countries.

LAHORE (Dunya News) – Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Wednesday said that a warm welcome would be accorded to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton when they arrived here on Thursday.

“We welcome the distinguished guests from the core of our hearts,” he said in a press statement.

The chief minister said the Pakistanis had great respect for the British royal family as memories of late Lady Diana’s visit to Pakistan were still alive in their minds.

Pakistan and the United Kingdom, he said, enjoyed friendly relations. The UK’s role in social sector development of Pakistan, especially the education sector, was praiseworthy, he added.

He hoped that the royal couple’s visit would further promote bilateral relations between the two countries.
