Prime Minister of Pakistan Shahbaz Sharif’s visit to Saudi Arabia

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister of Pakistan Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif will leave for Saudi Arabia today on a two-day visit with a delegation.

After arriving in Saudi Arabia, he will perform Umrah with the delegation.

The Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting has said that Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif is leaving for the Holy Hijaz on Thursday at the special invitation of well wisher of Pakistan and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Hon’ble Prince Muhammad bin Salman.

The Prime Minister will reach Madinah directly and pay homage to the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

This is Shahbaz Sharif’s first foreign trip since taking over as Prime Minister.

Experts say the visit is a reflection of renewed historical ties between the two countries based on fraternal, passionate and mutual trust and a new milestone of ideal friendship.

Former Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Dr. Ali Awad Al-Asiri, in his article in Arab Magazine, described the visit as important.

Strong and free from political upheaval Over the past several decades, this relationship has grown stronger and stronger in the political, defense, economic and cultural fields, and it can be hoped that under the charismatic leadership of newly elected Pakistani Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif will be better.

Praising the administrative capabilities of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Dr Al-Asiri said that as Chief Minister he had changed the face of Punjab province and his elder brother former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had integrated parliamentary institutions and made Pakistan the only nuclear state in the Muslim world.

He said that on the one hand, after the withdrawal of US from Afghanistan, Pakistan was facing a critical situation on the western border.

Saudi Arabia has always stood by Pakistan in its struggle for the welfare and prosperity of Pakistan.

This is a proud tradition since the establishment of Pakistan.

Earlier, after the approval of the Pakistan resolution in 1940, the Crown Prince Saud bin Abdul Aziz visited Karachi and was warmly welcomed by the leaders of the All India Muslim League, including Mirza Abul Hassan Isfahani.
