London Mayor Sadiq Khan has assured Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi that he would work towards fostering closer ties between London and Pakistan.

An Overground train runs from Imperial Wharf to Clapham Junction, on a journey which spans the River Thames.A promised Boxing Day service on the London Overground won't be introduced until at least 2018, if at all, Mayor Sadiq Khan has said in remarks branded "bitterly disappointing" by one London Assembly Member.

During his stay there, Khan had visited Delhi, Mumbai and Amritsar and met with politicians and celebrities.

Earlier in the day, while visiting the Golden Temple at Amritsar in India, Mr Khan called on the British government on Wednesday to make a formal apology for the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre in which almost 400 people were shot dead by British Indian army soldiers.

The mayor was received by officials from the Punjab government upon his arrival and is now holding a meeting with Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in Model Town.

Instead, the question was this: does Donald Trump have dentures? I'm just saying, can you imagine how he'd feel? It was not yet known if the president wears dentures or any other orthodontic device.

He arrived in Lahore after a three-day visit to India.

PM Abbasi welcomed him and said that every Pakistani is proud of his election as Mayor of London and prays for his success.

During the meeting, both the leaders held discussion on trade and investment opportunities in Pakistan.
