Shehbaz Sharif to visit Saudia Arabia with Fazlur Rehman


KARACHI: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif to visit the Kingdom of Saudia Arabia on Wednesday, April 27, in his first foreign trip after assuming the office of the prime minister. PMLN Vice President Maryam Nawaz and President Pakistan Democratic Alliance Maulana Fazlur Rehman will also accompany him.

The Pakistani delegation will perform Umrah during the trip. PM Shehbaz will also call upon Saudi Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, said the government sources. Meanwhile, Member National Assembly Mohsin Dawar, who was invited to accompany the PM on the visit to KSA, is likely to miss the trip as his name is on the Exit Control List (ECL).

In line with the new policy, the name of Mohsin Dawar was not removed from the ECL, said the sources. For being in the anti-state category, the sources said, the names of Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazeer were not removed from the ECL as per the new policy.

However, the names of PMLN leaders and Sharif family have been removed as per the new policy. Mohsin Dawar requires a permission from Interior Secretary for visiting the KSA along with the PM. Mohsin Dawar said that he had received an invitation for a visit to the KSA along with the PM but his name was still on the ECL list.
