A 2nd special commercial flight of the PIA (PK6572) took back 76 passengers (66 Pakistanis, 03 Russian citizens of Pakistani origin and 06 Uzbek citizens) from Tashkent, Uzbekistan to Lahore, Pakistan.
These Pakistani nationals included students, migrant workers and their families. These compatriots were stuck in Uzbekistan due to the suspension of international flights following the outbreak of COVID-19. The initiative for repatriation came about as a result of the Government of Pakistan’s policy to bring back Pakistani nationals stranded in other countries.
During their stay in Uzbekistan, the Mission remained in constant contact with the compatriots and strived to take utmost care of them.
We are grateful to the Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan for its kind support and cooperation for repatriation of our citizens. (8th August 2020)
Our foreign policy is one of friendliness and goodwill towards all the nations of the world.
