Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman in Jeddah to discuss the current crisis in Jammu and Kashmir, following India’s scrapping of the region’s longstanding special rights last month.

Axar.az reports citing Anadolu Agency.

Khan, who arrived in Jeddah earlier Thursday on a two-day visit ahead of the United nations General Assembly session in New York next week, apprised the Saudi crown prince of the “latest developments” in Jammu and Kashmir, a statement from the Prime Minister Office said.

Khan’s trip came weeks after Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir together with the UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan visited Pakistan in an attempt to stem Islamabad’s anger over their mild reaction to India’s controversial Kashmir move.

The UAE’s move to bestow its highest civilian award to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi almost coincided with New Delhi’s clampdown in Kashmir, drawing anger from Islamabad.

The premier also condemned the recent drone attacks on Saudi oil facilities, which knocked out more than half a crude output from the world’s largest exporter.

The leadership of both countries discussed ways to strengthen economic ties between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, the statement further said.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Finance Minister Abdul Hafeez Shaikh also attended the meeting.
