Saudi governor gifts gold plated Kalashnikov to PM Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD — The Governor of Tabuq Prince Fahad Bin Sultan Bin Abdul Aziz has gifted a gold plated Kalashnikov to Prime Minister Imran Khan.

PM Khan received Prince Fahd at the Prime Minister House on Monday and during the occasion, the governor of Tabuk, Saudi Arabia gifted a Kalashnikov to the premier.

The gold-plated Kalashnikov was covered in a beautiful case.

Defence Minister Pervez Khattak and Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua were also present during the meeting. The Saudi Arabia prince also met President Dr Arif Alvi.

Prince Fahd also called on Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa at the GHQ, the Inter-Services Public Relations said.

The two discussed matters of mutual interest, including the regional security situation.

The Tabuk governor’s visit comes days after a high-level Saudi delegation headed by Minister for Energy, Industry, and Minerals Khalid Abdul Aziz D Al Falih visited the port city of Gwadar to inspect the site for a proposed oil refinery and review necessary arrangements for a Memorandum of Understanding.

An agreement is likely to be signed between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia in February for the establishment of a mega oil city at the Gwadar deep seaport city, an ultimate destination of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
