New Delhi (Sputnik): Pakistan began evacuating its citizens from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Saturday, April 18 after Gulf states threatened to review working relationships with countries that refused to take back their citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic,
Pakistanis stranded in Dubai have been slammed Prime Minister Imran Khan and his government not to make arrangements to bring them back.
The stranded workers described it as a shame on the part of the Pakistani government for not bringing back its citizens despite charging them a large ticket.
