Saudi Crown Prince Signs $20B in Investment Deals in Pakistan

People in Pakistan have staged a rally against the planned visit of Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, to their country.

MBS will arrive in Islamabad on Sunday for a two-day visit that will see him hold talks with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa and President Arif Alvi, Pakistan's foreign office said in a statement this week.

Prince Mohammad bin Salman will then be awarded the country's highest civilian award - Nishan-e-Pakistan - at an auspicious ceremony at the Presidency.

Agreements worth billions of dollars will be signed during the visit, he said, adding that huge investments in Pakistan are expected from Saudi Arabia.

The country's premier also requested Prince Mohammad to have prospecting Hajj pilgrims be allowed to complete their immigration in Pakistan and not in Saudi Arabia. India says it has incontrovertible evidence of Pakistan's involvement, a charge Islamabad dismisses. The service will offer pre-clearance of immigration for pilgrims at their respective points of embarkation.

The premier also asked the heir to the Saudi throne to look into the 3,000 Pakistanis languishing in the Kingdom's jails.

Pakistan maintains strong political, cultural, economic and defense ties with Saudi Arabia.

The documents were signed by the ministers of foreign affairs, finance, power division, inter-provincial coordination, and petroleum division. Pakistan and Saudi Arabia will sign a number of agreements and MoUs in diverse sectors.

"Actually meeting Prince Salman is not in the plan so far but we can discuss it when we are in Islamabad", said the Taliban representative.
