UAE (PR): Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UAE Mr. Jamil Ahmed Khan had a meeting with Chairman Federal Board of Revenue Mr. Ali Arshad Hakeem in which he carried complaints of the overseas Pakistanis who were harassed at different airports in Pakistan.

“Overseas Pakistanis are a valuable asset of the country who are contributing in the uplift of national economy by sending record remittances to their homeland. They must be respected and given better facilitation at the airports”, said Ambassador Jamil Ahmed Khan during the meeting.
