RIYADH (92 News) - Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif reached Saudi Arabia on a two-official visit on Monday.

On his arrival, Deputy Governor Prince Mohammed Bin Abdur Rehman Bin Abdul Aziz welcomed the prime minister. During his stay, he will meet Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

The prime minister is undertaking the visit on the invitation of Saudi Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed bin Salman.

Prior to his departure from Nur Khan Air Base, Shehbaz Sharif in a series of tweets said the present state of the global economy needed 'new thinking and bold vision to overcome the irritants and forge new paths'.

Shehbaz Sharif said that there were serious concerns about the threat of global recession hitting the economies.

“The pandemic and climate-induced disasters have already put immense strains on the developing countries,” he said, adding that it was high time the world explored solutions to the deepening challenges through candid dialogue.

The Foreign Office, in a statement, said: “During his stay in Riyadh, the prime minister will hold consultations with the Saudi Crown Prince to review the longstanding fraternal relations, with a view to further strengthening the multifaceted cooperation, especially in the economic field.”
