Prime Minister Imran Khan has accepted an invitation to visit Saudi Arabia from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman who called him on Monday.

“Prime Minister Imran Khan received a telephone call today from the Saudi Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister, His Royal Highness Mohammed bin Salman,” the PM House said in a statement.

The crown prince inquired about the prime minister’s health and wished him speedy recovery. Premier Imran has tested positive for Covid-19, the deadly viral infection caused by the novel coronavirus.

“The crown prince invited the prime minister to undertake a visit to Saudi Arabia in the near future. The prime minister graciously accepted the invitation,” reads the statement.

It added that the prime minister and the crown prince agreed to work together to further augment bilateral ties in all spheres. They also reaffirmed the resolve to further strengthening the strong and longstanding Pakistan-Saudi Arabia fraternal ties.

Premier Imran also inquired about the well-being of the crown prince who recently had had a surgical procedure.

He lauded the transformational “Green Saudi Initiative” and the “Green Middle East initiative” recently announced by the crown prince. He also highlighted Pakistan’s “10 billion Tree Tsunami” initiative, which is under way in the whole country, and its potential dividends to restore ecosystem and to combat climate change.

While highlighting the complementarities between both countries’ environmental initiatives, the prime minister hoped for enhanced bilateral cooperation and knowledge sharing in this field.

Prime Minister Imran Khan conveyed warm wishes for the custodian of the two holy mosques, His Majesty King Salman bin Abdulaziz. He reaffirmed Pakistan’s desire to further strengthen amiable and fraternal ties with Saudi Arabia and also reiterated Pakistan’s support for the kingdom’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Must be on the back of the recently signed deal between China and Iran.

Things don't look good for Saudi and it's proxy wars against Iran.

there is no such thing as who need who or more of the other. this is what people in high offices in both the countries must realize. although it was not Pakistan who backed off but otherwise with their intentions not withstanding.

whatever the circumstances both need each other and regardless of who need the other more they should built relationship. the high horse was with MBS he must have come down to talk things and yes this time they took the heat which was coming form the west and felt it and are back to the senses.

Just remember this despotic regime interferred in your politics by giving Nawaz refuge. Keep at arms length but you won't do that will you, keep getting burnt.

US has ditched the crown prince....

M B Salman is desperate for allies.
Imran Khan for some reason decided to defend him when the US threw him under the bus for Kashoggi murder.
Imran Khan started off smart but has been making a lot of mistakes like these recently.

The deep state is a mess, the intelligista are not very intelligent. Most likely bribed up to their necks with a portfolio of properties abroad.

Lets start with creating a roadmap for strategic dominance in the region, decouple from politics and just fucking stick with it for half a century at least. This flipflopping for despots is ridiculous.

Even the Turkey advances are silly, what are they buying from you? They are shoving their tv shows and just shaping you as a buyer. This is not how relations are built.

Are You a direct descendant of Mir Jafar?
No, im just more realistic. Something that you probably aren't, judging by your comment.

The reason for this sudden bonhomie is fairly simple. The China-Iran 25 year plan includes provisions for setting up a joint petrochemical plant at Gwadar by the Chinese as part of linking CCWAEC and CPEC. This is something Pakistani gov has still not said yes to, so fairly obvious why KSA would suddenly want to invite Pakistan over.

Next two months should be interesting in terms of regional diplomacy.
