ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan will visit Kingdom of Saudia Arabia (KSA) following up after his recent trip to Iran to de-escalate tensions between Riyadh and Tehran.
PM Khan will meet Mohammad Bin Salman (MBS) in Riyadh to discuss on de-escalating the tension between the two countries.
“The prime minister will confer with the Saudi leadership in light of his recent consultations with other leaders. Bilateral ties and other regional developments would also form part of the discussions,” a statement by the Foreign Office said.
Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are bound in a fraternal relationship marked by mutual trust and understanding, close cooperation and an abiding tradition of supporting each other, the statement added.
This would be PM Imran’s third visit to Saudi Arabia this year. His earlier visits were in May and September 2019. From the Saudi side, HRH Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman paid a state visit to Pakistan in February 2019.
PM Khan visited Tehran on Sunday and cleared that Pakistan is willing to play the role of facilitator between Saudia Arabia and Iran.
PM Khan met the Iranian Supreme Leader Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei during his visit.
