The visit will enhance the existing relations between the two countries, the ministry said.
"Both the countries cooperate and coordinate on global and regional issues with a view to promoting stability, peace and security," it said.
Britain is Pakistan's second largest trade partner in Europe and an important source of foreign investment and remittances.
Cameron has committed an assistance of 650 million pounds for primary education in Pakistan. Britain has also agreed to facilitate academic links, student exchanges and increase numbers of Pakistani students in its universities.
