Saudi Crown Prince Arrives in Pakistan for Regional Visit

Saudi Crown Prince Arrives in Pakistan for Regional Visit

Sunday, 17 February 2019 11:38 AM

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has arrived in Pakistan's capital for a four-day regional visit.

Prime Minister Imran Khan and top officials received him at the airport.

During his two-day stay in Pakistan, the crown prince is expected to sign agreements worth billions of dollars for investments in the country.

He will later travel to India amid heightened tensions between Islamabad and New Delhi over this week's attack in Indian-controlled Kashmir that killed 41 troops.

This week also saw an attack in Iran that killed 27 Revolutionary Guard soldiers that was claimed by the Pakistan-based militant Jaish al-Adl group.

Pakistan condemned the attacks, but India and Iran blame it for the violence.

Pakistan enjoys close ties with Saudi Arabia. It maintains a balancing act between Riyadh and Tehran.
