Mayor of London Sadiq Khan arrives in Lahore, meets CM Shahbaz Sharif

The visiting mayor arrived in Lahore via Wagah Border crossing between India and Pakistan

Earlier, London Mayor Sadiq Khan arrived in Pakistan on an official visit through Wagah Border.

Sadiq Khan is leading a trade mission under the theme "London Is Open" to both India and Pakistan and is flanked by a 16-member delegation.

Khan was received on the Pakistani side of the border by Mayor Lahore Col (retd) Mubashar and senior government officials, Geo News reported.

Sharing images from the trip, he tweeted: "Honour to visit the most sacred place in the world for the Sikh faith - the lovely Golden Temple here in Amritsar, India".

BBC has defended their reporter's bold question by pointing out that it originated from the fact that many, including Punjab's chief minister Shehbaz Sharif, had called the mayor's trip "homecoming".
