Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud will visit Pakistan tomorrow (Tuesday) on the invitation of Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to discuss bilateral ties and regional and international issues, the Foreign Office said on Monday.
“On the invitation of Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, His Highness Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, will be visiting Pakistan on 27 July 2021,” read an official communique.
“He will be accompanied by a delegation comprising senior officials of the Saudi Government. During the visit, the two Foreign Ministers will exchange views on the entire gamut of bilateral relations and regional and international issues.”
The Saudi foreign minister will also be calling on other dignitaries as well during the visit.
The Saudi top official’s visit holds special significance in the backdrop of the recent visit of Prime Minister Imran Khan to Saudi Arabia in May 2021, the statement further maintained.
It stated that the visit will “provide a timely opportunity to review progress in bilateral cooperation in line with the vision of the leadership of the two countries. Pakistan and Saudi Arabia have long-standing and historic fraternal relations, rooted deep in common faith, shared history and mutual support.”
