On December 14, 2019, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
A statement released by Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry described the meeting as “part of the regular exchanges between the leadership of Pakistan and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.” The statement also added: “The consultations will cover bilateral matters and recent developments in the regional context.”
During his fourth visit to Saudi Arabia since May 2019, Prime Minister Kahn said: “Pakistan would continue to facilitate all efforts in that direction with a view to precluding conflict, defusing tensions and preserving peace for the benefit of the region and the world.” The Prime Minister also praised Saudi Arabia’s leadership, as the Kingdom assumed the presidency for 2020 G20. In turn, the Saudi side offered to help Pakistan’s tourism sector and to send Saudi delegates to visit Pakistan soon.
The two sides also shared views on current Pakistan-Saudi relations, which they deemed uniquely strong. The leaders also noted that the establishment of the Saudi-Pakistan Supreme Coordination Council (SPSCC) advanced bilateral cooperation in various areas.
