FM pledges to further strengthen relations with Saudi Arabia


Islamabad: Pakistan’s Ambassador-designate to Saudi Arabia Ameer Khurram Rathore called on Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in Islamabad on Friday.

Congratulating the ambassador on his new assignment, the Foreign Minister said Pakistan and Saudi Arabia have strong bilateral and time-tested brotherly relations, which will further strengthen with the appointment of a seasoned diplomat.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said with the government’s focus on economic priorities, our ambassadors abroad should also employ economic diplomacy to play their role in the economic stability of the country.

He said the welfare of Pakistanis abroad is one of the topmost priorities of our government and there are a large number of Pakistanis living in Saudi Arabia who are contributing to the economic development of the country by sending their hard-earned money to Pakistan.
