Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Crown Prince and Prime Minister, is scheduled to visit Pakistan next month.
According to sources, Mohammed bin Salman will arrive in Pakistan on September 10 and will remain for approximately six hours before departing for India on a state visit for the G-20 meeting.
During his brief visit to Pakistan, the crown prince will meet with caretaker Prime Minister Asif Ali Zardari, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir, and other officials.
According to a diplomatic source, issues of mutual interest will be discussed.
Saudi Arabia’s plans to build an oil refinery in Pakistan will also be discussed during MBS’s visit, according to sources.
The Saudi ruler was scheduled to visit Islamabad on November 21, his first visit in more than four years, and Pakistan was hoping for another financial bailout package.
However, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s much-anticipated visit to Pakistan has been postponed for undisclosed reasons.
“The appointment has been rescheduled. “New dates will be mutually agreed upon by both parties,” Foreign Office spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra said.
Salman had also canceled his trip to neighboring India and other Asian countries.
