Saudi Arabia deny Crown Prince's takeover bid report

Pakistan       by Web Desk | Published

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman landed in Islamabad Sunday evening for a two-day landmark visit and received a splendid and warm welcome.

But in a Tweet on Monday, his media minister Turki al-Shabanah said the reports were false.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Sunday that the visit by the crown prince will take their countries' bilateral relations "to new heights". While Saudi Arabia has condemned the Pulwama attack, the visit was not called off.

But that was unlikely after the Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the group's planned meetings with Khan and US officials in Islamabad were called off.

The total investment opportunities resulted in over 20 billion dollars, which would increase the mutual investment and volume of trade between the two brotherly countries. His tour will also take him to India and China this week. - AP Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrives at Nur Khan Airbase.

He is staging the visit just five months after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a fierce critic, at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul ignited a diplomatic crisis.

Islamabad has shown appreciation by treating Crown Prince Muhammad's trip as the biggest state visit since Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2015.

Saudi prince starts Asia tour with deals to invest $20 billion in Pakistan

Turkey said Friday it has not yet revealed all the information it has uncovered in the case, which launched a global wave of revulsion and tarnished the crown prince's reputation.

But for analysts, the Asia tour - the largest outing on the worldwide scene for the Saudi royal since his participation in the G20 summit in Argentina last December - is a timely demonstration to the West that he still has friends in rising Asia.

Pakistan has also been accused by its western neighbour Iran of harbouring militants who carried out an attack that killed 27 Revolutionary Guards last week. India has vowed to isolate Pakistan internationally, including seeking Pakistan's blacklisting by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which monitors financing of terrorism.

The Norwegian, a fans' favourite, has seen a turnaround in fortunes and they are back in contention to finish in the Premier League top four and claim a Champions League spot.

Of the latest deals, Prince bin Salman said: "It's big for phase one, and definitely [our commercial relationship] will grow every month and every year, and it will be beneficial to both countries". In response to Prime Minister Khan's request for Saudi Arabia to treat Pakistani Labourers as their own people, the Saudi prince stated, "Consider me an ambassador of Pakistan in Saudi Arabia".

Nevertheless, social media strongly reacted to the Pakistani Prime Minister's move to personally drive the vehicle to welcome the Crown Prince of Saudi.
