Khan later called on Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif at his residence and attended a luncheon there.

Sadiq Khan is on a three-day visit to Pakistan as part of the "London is Open" promotional tour.

Khan visits to India and Pakistan are part of the LondonIsOpen campaign - launched by the mayor- to show that London is united and open for businesses, and to the world, following the European Union referendum.

Earlier, in India, the Mayor met Bollywood bigwigs and addressed a couple of conferences besides visiting heritage sites.

The chief minister was quoted as saying that Pakistan had achieved great success in its war on terrorism, and would win it by introducing various socio-economic reforms.
