ISLAMABAD - After wrapping up his first foreign tour to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday reached back to Pakistan.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Finance Minister Asad Umar, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhary, Adviser on Commerce Abdul Razak Dawood, and Pakistan’s Ambassador in KSA Hasham bin Siddique also attended the meeting.

The prime minister was received by King Salman at his Palace in Jeddah, where he was presented with a guard of honor and a state banquet was hosted for him and his entourage. In the meeting, the two leaders discussed bilateral relationship, the regional and global political situation and the issues confronting Muslim Ummah. They expressed their desire to further enhance and diversify bilateral cooperation and to continue close coordination on issues of mutual interest.
