'Home is south London', says Sadiq on Pakistan 'homecoming'

A similar incident just occurred to London Mayor Sadiq Khan during his historic walk across the border between India and Pakistan.

The Pakistani-Britisher entered Punjab's capital Lahore from India via the Wagah Border Crossing and was given a rousing welcome on the Pakistani side of the border by Mayor Lahore Col (retd) Mubashar and senior government officials.

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

During the trip, he became the first ever London mayor to take a trade mission to both India and Pakistan.

The prime minister said that successful counter-terrorism efforts have made Pakistan an opportune destination for United Kingdom businesses.

The London mayor was also briefed about the investment opportunities for trade and investment in the country.

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.

Speaking at a dinner reception given by the mayor of Lahore, Mr Khan said he was impressed by the hospitality of the people of Lahore.

Mr Khan said that the cities of London and Lahore enjoyed good relations and expressed the desire to enhance cooperation and investment with Lahore in various sectors. He was happy to note that Pakistan and its society were progressing.

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