Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday arrived in Dubai from London where he is joined by his daughter and senior vice president of the party Maryam Nawaz.

The PML-N chief is expected to spend three to four days in the UAE after which he will travel to Saudi Arabia, where he is expected to spend Eid ul Adha with his family and perform Umrah.

Maryam accompanied by family members left for Dubai from Lahore Airport earlier today.

A day earlier, the three-time premier confirmed that he would be visiting Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia for about three weeks.

He is expected to hold meetings with members of royal families and local businessmen as well as community leaders.

Hussain Nawaz — the elder son of the former prime minister — also told reporters that his father would be going to Dubai and travel to Saudi Arabia to perform the holy pilgrimage.

A day earlier, Prime Minister Shehbaz met his elder brother Nawaz in London, where he arrived after concluding his trip to Paris.

The PML-N supremo had spent the previous Eid with his family in the kingdom where PM Shehbaz and other family members joined him in the last days of Ramadan and over Eid ul Fitr.

PML-N sources said Nawaz will be returning to Pakistan in the next few months.
