The Pakistan flag will be lowered to half-mast throughout the country on Monday.

The observance of this day is to “express solidarity” with and pay respects to the government and people of the UK on the “sad demise” of the Queen, stated the Pakistani mission in a tweet.

Queen Elizabeth visited Pakistan twice as the country celebrated 50 years of independence from British colonial rule, once in 1961 and again in 1997.
