Munir Akram said besides meetings with the Pakistani leadership, Antonio Guterres will participate in the international conference on 40 years of hosting Afghan refugees in Pakistan.
He said the UN Secretary General will also visit Lahore and will be taken to the Kartarpur Corridor which was hailed by the UN General Assembly last December as landmark initiative for peace by the Prime Minister Imran Khan.
