Khan was speaking on the occasion of Pakistan's founder Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's birthday, organized by the PML-N Riyadh at a local hotel recently.
The event entitled "Bright Future of Pakistan" aimed to highlight the unity and strength of the Pakistani community in the Kingdom.
Many well-known national songs, a tableau and speeches on Pakistan's bright future, and the positive role played by expatriate Pakistanis were also presented during the event.
