Saudi FM to Visit Pakistan on July 27 to Discuss ‘Entire Gamut’ of Ties

Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al-Saud, will arrive in Islamabad on an official visit on July 27 to discuss bilateral, regional and international issues, the Pakistani foreign office said on Monday.

This will be Prince Faisal’s second state visit to Pakistan in a year. He was last in Islamabad in December 2020.

The foreign office said the Saudi foreign minister was visiting Pakistan on the invitation of Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
“The two FMs will exchange views on the entire gamut of Pakistan-Saudi Arabia ties, and regional and int’l issues. Saudi FM will also call on other dignitaries,” the FO said.

“Saudi foreign minister is visiting Pakistan on July 27,” a Saudi embassy official had also confirmed, saying the visit was a continuation of “high-level engagements between the two countries which started with the visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, followed by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to the kingdom.”

The crown prince was in Islamabad on a high-profile visit in February 2019, during which Saudi Arabia signed investment deals with Pakistan worth over $20 billion. PM Khan visited Riyadh this May and signed several agreements on political, economic, trade, and defense cooperation.
