Later on, Sadiq met with Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif and visited the historical Badshahi Mosque.
London's mayor, on a six day trip to India and Pakistan, called on Mrs May to reinstate the post-study work visas she scrapped in 2012. He is scheduled to spend three days in Pakistan and will travel to Lahore, Islamabad, and Karachi.
Khan is the first ever mayor of London to make an official visit to Pakistan.
With more than 35 million pilgrims visiting Amritsar every year to offer obeisance at the Golden Temple, the holy city had emerged as the preferred destination for the Punjabi diaspora and foreign tourists, Punjab lawmakers stated in a memorandum presented on Tuesday to visiting London mayor, Sadiq Khan.
Earlier Sadiq Khan was earlier in India for around three days where he held meetings with government officials, members of the civil society and entertainment industry.
The trip is aimed at strengthening trade and investment links as well as promoting cultural exchange.
He said that he hopes for good deals, friendships, and partnerships and added that London's citizens have rejected the process of hatred and divide.
"After celebrating 70 years of Pakistan this year, I look forward to the next 70 years to celebrate the friendship between London and Pakistan". "I love Pakistan and am aware of the challenges faced by the country". The delegation was received by Lahore Mayor Colonel (retd) Mubashir at the border.
