The President of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), Maria Fernanda Espinosa, will visit Pakistan from January 18 to 22, her spokesperson said.

According to spokesperson Monica Grayley, this will be Espinosa's first official visit to the Asia Pacific since she took office in September.

During her five-day visit, Espinosa will meet Pakistan's President Arif Alvi, Prime Minister Imran Khan, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi as well as representatives of the UN and civil society, Geo News reported on Saturday.
