ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan Saturday left for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on one-day visit where he would hold meetings with the Saudi leadership. Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said the visit was part of bilateral cooperation and regular exchanges between the leadership of the two countries. The discussions between the two sides would cover bilateral matters and recent developments in the regional context. PM Imran underscored that Pakistan wishes for peace and stability in the entire region, including the Gulf countries. All conflicts and disagreements can be resolved through political dialogue and diplomacy, he added. The PM had also apprised MbS about the latest conditions in Indian occupied Kashmir which has been under a military lockdown since August 5. This would be Prime Minister Imran’s fourth visit to Saudi Arabia since May. In October, he also travelled to Iran following his meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in New York in September. Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, and DG ISI Lt-Gen Faiz Hameed also visited Iran. General Qamar’s visit to Tehran in November was considered significant as he, according to some diplomatic sources, was carrying an important message for the Iranian leadership on behalf of the Saudis. Pakistan has been trying to seek a patch-up between Iran and Saudi Arabia since September when the Saudi oil facilities came under missile attacks. The prime minister would also visit the Roza-e-Rasool (Peace be Upon Him) in Madina. Speaking at the weekly news briefing, Foreign office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal on Thursday said high-level exchanges between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are the ‘hallmark of the brotherly relationship.’ “You have witnessed the high frequency of leadership level exchanges, especially since last August. The prime minister has undertaken at least 3 visits to KSA since May this year,” he added. During his last visit to Saudi Arabia in October, PM Imran had met Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud in a bid to ease tensions between Tehran and Riyadh.
