Pakistan, Saudi Arabia have blind faith in each other: Shehbaz


LAHORE Jan 02 (TNS): Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif returned from Saudi Arabia on Tuesday and visited the kidney centre.

Speaking to media, Shehbaz said Saudi Arabia was among the best friends of Pakistan. “During every crisis – storms, earthquakes, diplomatic, Saudi Arabia has supported Pakistan without any conditions.”

Shehbaz Sharif emphasised that both countries had blind faith in each other. He also clarified that he went to Saudi Arabia after being invited for Umrah when asked by reporters that there had been increasing criticism by opposition parties on the visit of the Sharif brothers.

Prior to his return, Shehbaz along with former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif met with Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman for a 1.5 hour-long meeting on Monday night.

Shehbaz Sharif termed a recent tweet by US President Donald Trump about Pakistan as irresponsible. He stressed that Trump had levelled serious allegations against Pakistan and the entire country needed to be united in its reply.
