Imran Khan—the Prime Minister of Pakistan to leave for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia today.
According to Radio Pakistan, Imran Khan’s one-day trip to Saudi Arabia is a part of his initiative for peace and security in the region.
The statement issued by the Foreign Office said that Prime Minister Imran Khan will confer with the Saudi leadership in light of his recent consultations with the other leaders of the different states.
“Bilateral ties and other developments in the region will also be the part of the discussions between the leaders,” the statement reads.
It is pertinent to mention here that this visit would be the third visit of Imran Khan to the Kingdom this year. Back in February, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed Bin Salman paid a state visit to Pakistan.
On Sunday, Prime Minister Imran Khan met with the Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the President of Iran Hassan Rouhani in Tehran, the capital city of Iran during the one-day official visit.
In the meeting, the leaders of both countries have emphasized the need for peace in the region.
“In the past, Pakistan had hosted Saudi Arabia and Iran and we are again willing to facilitate the brotherly countries to iron out their differences,” Prime Minister Imran Khan had said in Tehran, adding that it was Pakistan’s own initiative to act as a “facilitator”.
