Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan will pay a day-long visit to Bahrain on Monday on the invitation of Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa to attend the National Day of Bahrain as Guest of Honour, the Foreign Ministry of Pakistan said on Sunday.

The prime minister will be accompanied by a high-level delegation including members of the cabinet and senior government officials, a foreign ministry statement said, reported Xinhua news agency.

This is Khan's first visit to Bahrain since assuming office in August 2018.

During the visit, he will have one-on-one meeting with Hamad and hold delegation-level talks with Bahraini Crown Prince Salman Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, according to the statement.

"The exchange of views would cover the entire gamut of bilateral relations and matters pertaining to regional and international issues," the foreign ministry said.

Bahrain's highest civil award will be conferred upon the prime minister.

The foreign ministry said the two countries have established institutional mechanisms to bolster bilateral cooperation in diverse fields. The two countries also enjoy close inter-parliamentary cooperation.

Over 100,000 Pakistani expatriate community, which contributes to the socio-economic development of Bahrain, acts as a strong human bridge between the two countries, according to the statement.

"The Prime Minister's visit to Bahrain will enable the two sides to explore ways and means to further deepen bilateral trade and investments ties. The visit is of special significance and will impart a strong impetus to both sides' endeavours to forge a closer, multifaceted bilateral relationship," according to the statement.
