Saudi foreign minister arrives today

06 January, 2014

RIYADH: Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's Foreign Affairs Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal is scheduled to meet Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif during his two-day visit starting today (Monday).

He will also hold a press conference on Tuesday before leaving Pakistan. The prince's visit has nothing to do with the trial of ex-president Pervez Musharraf, according to Muhammad Naeem Khan, the Pakistani Ambassador to the Kingdom.

"The visit was rescheduled last September on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting when Prince Saud met Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The prime minister invited the prince to visit Pakistan," Naeem Khan told Okaz/Saudi Gazette.

He noted that Musharraf's trial was strictly a domestic affair and will be treated as such and according to domestic laws and norms.

This is the first visit Prince Saud is making to Pakistan since Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif won the elections. It is a good opportunity for the prime minister to be briefed on the Kingdom's opinion regarding what has been going on in the region.

Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Abdul Aziz Al-Ghadeer underscored the importance of the visit. Both countries are working to intensify their efforts to solve the issues of Muslim Ummah. They will also discuss the latest developments in the region and around the world.
