He also praised the efforts of UAE Consul General Sohail bin Mater who, under the dynamic leadership of Sheikha Lubna, successfully organised the exhibition.
He said the people of Pakistan would eternally remain indebted to the UAE people who have always contributed generously in case of natural calamities, be it earthquake of 2005 or unprecedented floods of 2010.
“We cannot not ever forget the hard work done by the rescue teams from UAE, Military Relief Force, charitable foundations in the rescue, distribution of supplies and rehabilitation of victims of earthquake and floods through lengthy operations in the most flood affected regions of Punjab, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistsan provinces,” he said.
