Khan is the first ever mayor of London to make an official visit to Pakistan.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan arrived in Lahore on Wednesday via the Wagah Border.

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". He had earlier stayed in India for three days where he met politicians and other prominent personalities in Mumbai, Delhi and Amritsar.

The BBC later defended the reporter's question, claiming it resulted because Punjab's chief minister Shehbaz Sharif had already described the trip as a "homecoming".

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