Saudi Arabia crown prince to visit India next week

Saudi Arabia crown prince to visit India next week

In his interview, al-Jubeir also firmly denied that the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had anything to do with Khashoggi slaying.

So far no date has been given for the visit of the Crown Prince but he is expected to arrive on a two-day trip before the end of this week.

In the letter, obtained by The Associated Press, Pompeo wrote that in multiple meetings with Saudi officials and in numerous public statements, he had "emphasized the importance of a thorough, transparent and timely investigation, including accountability for those responsible for the killing".

The Express Tribune reported that Prime Minister's Adviser on Commerce and Investment Razak Dawood said it was likely that an agreement for United States dollars 3 billion oil facility on deferred payments will also be signed during the visit. However, two of the top hotels in Islamabad have been fully booked for his staff, while two others have been partially booked.

He did not put an exact investment figure by Saudi Arabia, as the precise size of the investment will be determined once a feasibility study of the oil refinery is ready.

In October, Prime Minister Imran Khan visited Riyadh in a bid to woo potential investors and to secure funds from Saudi government to overcome its balance of payment crisis.

Apart from attending the Future Investment Initiative (FII) conference, the Pakistani premier also met with King Salman bin Abdul Aziz and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to discuss matters of mutual interest. The fellow Muslim country will provide oil worth $3 billion to Pakistan for three years. "It was committed by officials of the Saudi government acting outside their scope of authority".

As part of the safety measures, security on the entry and exit points of the capital will remain tightened during the presence of Saudi delegation in Islamabad.

Among the officials that accompanied the Crown Prince was Sheikh Saad Bin Nasser Al-Shithri, member of the Council of Senior Scholars and advisor at the Royal Court.
