Pakistan–United Arab Emirates relations refer to bilateral relations between the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates.
These relations date back to the UAE’s formation in 1971 and have since evolved into wide-ranging co-operation in various fields. Pakistan was the first country to extend recognition of the United Arab Emirates, while the UAE continues to be a major donor of economic and financial assistance to Pakistan.
UAE recognized Pakistan’s contribution to the evolution of key institutions in the Emirates while Pakistan recognizes UAE’s investment in Pakistan’s economy and infrastructure. Both countries populations share the same faith and are majorly Muslim.
