Saudi Arabia and longstanding ally Pakistan signed several agreements on Saturday and vowed to strengthen bilateral relations. On his seventh visit to the kingdom since his 2018 election, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan was given a warm welcome by Saudi officials in the western coastal city of Jeddah. He was greeted by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman at the airport, before holding talks with Saudi officials at Jeddah’s Al Salam Palace.

Imran and Mohammed Bin Salman have affirmed their commitment to fortify the “upward trajectory” in Pakistan – Saudi Arabia bilateral relations, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) in a statement issued on Saturday.

The prime minister met crown prince in Jeddah and held wide-ranging talks on bilateral, regional and international issues. “The talks were marked by exceptional cordiality and a commitment to fortify the upward trajectory in the bilateral relationship.” The two sides also agreed upon further deepening cooperation in all fields.
