Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived in Saudi Arabia on a one-day visit to strengthen relations between the two Islamic countries, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Imran Khan arrived in Medina in the first phase of his visit, where he was received by Waheeb Al-Sahli, deputy governor of Medina on the Royal Terminal and Khalid Majeed, Consul General of Pakistan in Jeddah. Saudi Protocol officials and Pakistani consulate officials were also present on the occasion, while Foreign Secretary Sohail Mahmood also arrived at the terminal. Prime Minister Imran Khan will attend Roza-e-Rasool (Peace be Upon Him) and will leave Riyadh for official engagements after paying Nawafil.

Earlier, Radio Pakistan reported that the Prime Minister will discuss issues related to bilateral relations and recent changes in the situation in the region during a meeting with the Saudi leadership. In this regard, Foreign Office spokesman Dr. Mohammad Faisal said that the Prime Minister’s visit is part of cooperation and delegation exchanges between the two countries, during which Prime Minister Roza-e-Rasool (Peace be Upon Him) Will attend.

Earlier, Arab sources said that the recent visit of Prime Minister Imran Khan to Saudi Arabia’s decision to attend the Kuala Lumpur summit, held in Malaysia from December 18 to 20, was coincided with the indications that Saudi Arabia was angry. The Kuala Lumpur summit is thought to be the mind of Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohammed, which will be attended by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Qatari Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. The meeting was also likely to attend Indonesian President Joko Widodo’s meeting, but there are reports that he has been under pressure and his representative will attend the meeting. Although it is premature to say what the Malaysian move is, the Saudis are already looking at the meeting as an attempt to present an alternative to the Islamic Cooperation Organization (OIC). It is important to note that the increasingly dysfunctional Islamic Cooperation Organization operates under the Saudi leadership.

Pakistan, on the other hand, is deeply interested in the meeting and a statement from the Foreign Ministry said in this regard. The Kuala Lumpur Summit will provide Pakistan with an opportunity to discuss the challenges facing the Muslim world, especially governance, development, terrorism and Islamophobia and to find solutions. Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan had sent Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi to celebrate Riyadh, where he met Saudi counterpart Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah. According to the Saudi Press Agency, the two foreign ministers discussed bilateral agendas as well as recent developments in the region and international affairs. In addition, the Prime Minister has sought mediation between Saudi Arabia and Iran for the past few months, but the recent move has not been as successful as in the past.
