The ban was placed due to “difficult security conditions in the five countries” and to “the remarkably increasing tendency of nationals from the five countries to apply for visas to bring in relatives who faced or could face arrest by local authorities,” the sources said.
PM Nawaz Sharif arrived at Bayan Palace on Tuesday to hold talks with the leadership of Kuwait. The Prime Minister is visiting Kuwait along with a high-level delegation. He had arrived in Kuwait on Monday upon the invitation of Amir of Kuwait. This is good step by Kuwait government for Pakistan.
