Prime Minister Imran Khan has found his newest fan in the Malaysian first lady.
As the premier wrapped up his two-day official visit to Malaysia on Wednesday, a lighter moment emerged when Malaysian first lady, Siti Hasmah Mohamad Ali, asked him during a photo op: "Prime minister, can I hold your hand?"
“Sure!” PM Imran replied, amused, drawing laughter from the audience and a hearty chuckle from his Malaysian counterpart Mahathir Mohamad.
PM Imran’s visit to Malaysia came to an end late Wednesday, as the Malaysian premier bid him farewell at the airport.
During his visit, PM Imran also invited Dr Mahathir to visit Pakistan as chief guest on Pakistan Day on March 23. The invitation was accepted by the Malaysian prime minister.
