  • Mayor of London Sadiq Khan arrives in Lahore, meets CM Shahbaz Sharif

A reporter was caught on camera today asking London Mayor Sadiq Khan "what does it feel like coming home?" as he spoke to media in Pakistan.

Khan, who is on a three-day official visit to Pakistan, called on the premier in Islamabad on Thursday, according to Radio Pakistan.

Mr Khan's Muslim parents were both born in India and then lived in Pakistan before emigrating to Britain in 1968.

Last June, in answer to a question from Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon, Mayor Khan said that while the contract with Overground operator Arriva Rail London contains provision for the service, its introduction would be "subject to staff consultation" and that "the earliest possible date" it could launch would be Boxing Day 2017. Mr Khan had a one-on-one meeting with the chief minister and later visited the Badshahi Mosque and the Lahore Fort, before attending a dialogue at Alhamra.

Sadiq Khan is now taking part in the first ever trade mission by a London mayor to India and Pakistan. The government, in collaboration with the Department for International Development of the United Kingdom, had already introduced far-reaching reforms in education, healthcare and skills development sectors.

Sadiq Khan said that he was impressed by the remarkable progress achieved by the government in different areas particularly in infrastructure, technology and energy.

"The foreign minister also briefed the mayor about Pakistan's successes in the economic field and the regional situation", a Foreign Office statement said. "It is the heart of Pakistan and is certainly the hub of Pakistani culture", he said.

The mayor was born and raised in Tooting, South London.
