KARACHI: Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi arrived in Karachi on a day-long visit on Saturday, marking his first time in the city after being elected as head of government.

Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah and Governor Mohammad Zubair welcomed him, reports the Dawn. 

Prime Minister Abbasi is accompanied by Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal.

He commenced his trip by visiting the mausoleum of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, where he laid a floral wreath.

Abbasi will later chair a meeting on Karachi's law and order situation at Governor House. During the meeting, security institutions will brief him about the targeted operation underway in the metropolis.

The premier will meet leaders of Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan and exchange views on a development package for Karachi.

Abbasi was sworn in as the Prime Minister earlier this month.
