Newly-elected Pakistan PM praises Saudi Arabia ahead of official visit

Pakistan’s prime minister will visit Saudi Arabia on Thursday to “renew and reaffirm our links of brotherhood and friendship,” according to a social media statement made before his departure.

Shehbaz Sharif said in a tweet that he and the Kingdom’s leadership will have “wide-ranging discussions.”

“KSA is one of our greatest friends & as Custodian of the Two Holy Places, has a special place in all our hearts,” he added.

On April 6, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman congratulated Pakistan’s new Prime Minister Mohammed Sharif for taking up the premiership role.

During the call, the two leaders “emphasized the depth of bilateral relations between the two brotherly countries and agreed to strengthen and develop them in various fields,” according to SPA.

Additionally, the Crown Prince said that the Kingdom was keen to support Pakistan across sectors.
