Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday stated that amount of respect Prime Minister Imran Khan gets in Saudi Arabia shows Pakistan’s prestige in Muslim Ummah and how much importance is being given to the premier by Ummah.
“A very busy day is ahead for the prime minister,” Fawad wrote.
سعودی عرب میں جو احترام وزیر اعظم عمران خان کو ملتا ہے وہ ظاہر کرتا ہے کہ اللہُ کی مہربانی سے آج مسلم امہ میں پاکستان کا کیا مقام ہے اور عمران خان کو مسلم امہ کیا اہمیت دیتی ہے۔ ریاض میں چند گھنٹے ہی سو سکے اور اب ایک انتہائ مصروف دن منتظر ہے، https://t.co/Fm0Pj2WQdu

In the second tweet, Chaudhry wrote that Imran Khan will attend a Question and Answer session at the conference and then will meet Saudi King Shah Salman, Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman and Saudi ministers.
“Prime minister will also meet the Saudi businessmen and investors,” Chaudhry stated.
Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived in Saudi Arabia on Monday to attend the Future Investment Initiative Conference (FIIC) in Riyadh, saying his country was going through the worst debt crisis of its history “so we are desperate at the moment”.
The prime minister arrived in Madina alongwith Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Finance Minister Asad Umar, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and PM’s Adviser on Commerce Razzak Dawood. The delegation was received by Madina’s Governor Prince Faisal bin Salman and Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf Al Malki.
“The reason I feel I have to avail myself of this opportunity [to speak to the Saudi leadership] is because in a country of 210 million people right now we have the worst debt crisis in our history,” PM Khan told British news website, the Middle East Eye, before leaving for Saudi Arabia.
