No words are strong enough to describe the most warm brotherly relations based on mutual respect and love between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. Relations between the two countries are no doubt cited as most ideal ties around the world. Saudi Arabia has always stood with and supported Pakistan in every difficult time be it some natural calamity, foreign aggression or any other problem of grave nature. Pakistanis always look towards Saudi Arabia when they are facing with some big problem and Saudi help and assistance comes within no time.

Brotherly warmest bilateral relations between two countries were highlighted and possibilities for further enhancing cooperation in different fields were explored when Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi during his one day visit called on King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud in Riyadh the other day.

According to the reports in the media, the two dignitaries reviewed in some detail their bilateral relations in addition to regional and international issues and also discussed ways and means to further enhance these relations in diverse fields.

The PM quite appreciably lauded the efforts of the Saudi leadership in bringing peace and stability in the region and assured continued Pakistan’s full support in this regard.

The Saudi King praised the very warm and excellent relations that exist between the two key members of the Islamic Ummah and lauded Pakistan’s concerted and determined efforts in rooting out the menace of terrorism and extremism from its soil.

Needless to say, all this indeed augurs very well but still there is always room for further cementing and strengthening of these relations through increased cooperation and assistance in different fields. Thanks.
