Pak PM likely to visit Saudi Arabia

Islamabad: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will pay a three-day visit to Saudi Arabia from March 9 to strengthen bilateral ties between the two nations.

Although no official statement has been announced yet, Dawn reported claiming sources that Sharif plans to visit Saudi Arabia from March 9 to 11.

As per reports, Sharif is likely to meet King Salman and attend the inaugural summit of the 34-nation military alliance which Saudi Arabia has announced for fighting terrorism.

Sharif’s visit comes ahead of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s likely visit to Islamabad after March 20.

Rouhani’s visit has not been finalised yet.

Tehran and Islamabad have in the past cancelled visits due to regional issues.

Sharif had visited Riyadh and Tehran in January when tension between the two states was at its height.

The trip was dubbed as a mediation trip. (ANI)
