    Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed on Thursday his country's full support to Saudi Arabia following last weekend attacks on the kingdom's oil facilities, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

    "Pakistan fully supports the kingdom with all its capacities in confronting these sabotage acts," the state news agency cited him as saying during a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah.

    Seems Pakistan will have to eventually take a side. This is a right choice by Pakistan.

    To Imran Khan's benefit, there were no Brahmos missile strikes on Pakistan's economic assets. The GCC still sees the Kashmir conflict as a land disputes between the two countries. Deep inside, they want Pakistan to just solve it with India bilaterally, and not bother the GCC while they invest billions in the very promising Indian economy.

    Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday met with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and expressed Pakistan's resolve to stand with Saudi Arabia "in the event of a threat to its sanctity and security", a statement by the Prime Minister's Office said.

    The premier condemned the recent drone attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities and assured King Salman of Pakistan's continued support to the Kingdom.

    According to the PMO statement, Prime Minister Imran also briefed King Salman on the current situation in occupied Kashmir.

    "King Salman reiterated the Kingdom's solidarity and long-held support on the Kashmir issue," said the statement.

    The two leaders discussed relations between the two countries as well as the regional and global political situation.

    They also talked about other matters of mutual interest including trade, investment and economic relations.

    Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Advisor to the Prime Minister on Finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis Syed Zulfikar Bukhari, Foreign Secretary Sohail Mehmood, and Pakistan's ambassador to Saudi Arabia Raja Ali Ejaz were in attendance during the meeting between the two leaders.

    Earlier in the day, the premier met Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and apprised him of the latest developments in India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

    According to the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf official Twitter account, the premier "highlighted the tyranny of the Indian government" in occupied Kashmir following New Delhi's decision to strip the region of its autonomy on August 5. The occupied territory has since been under a strict government-imposed lockdown and communications blackout.

    During his meeting with the Saudi prince, the prime minister also condemned the recent attacks in Saudi Arabia on Aramco's oil facilities, the PMO statement said.


    Prime Minister Imran has been in "regular contact" with the Saudi crown prince over the issue. The prime minister has, as part of his efforts to draw the world's attention towards the situation in the Kashmir Valley, called the crown prince earlier this month to brief him over the situation in the region.

    The prime minister will also bring up the matter in his speech at the UN General Assembly next week.

    As a result of his phone calls to crown princes of UAE and Saudi Arabia, the foreign ministers of both countries visited Islamabad earlier this month and discussed the situation in occupied Kashmir in their meetings with the prime minister, army chief and foreign minister.

    Later in the evening, the prime minister met with a group of Pakistanis from various walks of life.

    "My aim was to brief the Saudi leadership on the occupied Kashmir situation, ahead of the United Nations General Assembly session," he told the group of his visit to the Kingdom.

    "We must highlight this issue all over the world," he said.

    The prime minister said that Quaid-e-Azam had "already foreseen that Muslims will not get their due rights while living in India, which Modi's actions have proven".

    He said that relations between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have "reached new heights" and that the Kingdom had "helped Pakistan in all times of difficulty".

    He assured the delegation that the government was bringing improvements across all sectors of Pakistan's economy, despite all the hurdles it is faced with owing to the poor state it had been handed over in.

    "Bringing in investments is our top priority for which we are instituting legislative reforms so that the investments made by overseas Pakistanis remain secure," he said.

    The prime minister said that various efforts are also being made for ease of doing business so that people can find incentive to invest in the country.

    What is the support for Kashmir exactly? Or is Pakistan getting paid to provide security?

    I dont support any war in Makkah or Madina or any war for control of the holy lands but i disagree with the argument where people say Allah azzawajal understands better and would not give Kaba in the wrong hands.

    We should read the Islamic history. The non Muslims had the control of Kaba for centuries, the shias had the control for nearly 100years, Yazeedis had control etc. This does not mean those people were correct, otherwise we might as well start to worship idols.

    The reality is we as Muslims are responsible to give Haram authority to those who best fit it. The current Saudi regime claimed Haram control belongs to the ummah but now backtracked from that agreement. They forcibly try to propagate a Saudi version of reformist Islam on the ummah.

    Where are their sanctions on India?

    They can drown in their own mess. Pakistani nukes are for protection of Pakistanis only.

    India is not sanctioned by Pakistan and our traders are smuggling many products from india and their content is widely published by our media then why you are expecting saudis to sanction india,it is time for us to increase influence in arab world by protecting them and inreturn we will get more favor than india if we play our card well
