Rumors were that Pakistan is considering the decision to announce Friday off as the country is currently working on further strengthening its ties with the UAE as well as Saudi Arabia. Sunday is observed as the weekly off in Pakistan and Friday as a weekly holiday in Arab countries.
However, there will be now no change in weekly calendar.
