Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi stressed on Tuesday that Pakistan and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) enjoy “deep, historical and fraternal ties.”
Foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in a statement said that a high-level Saudi delegation led by the Kingdom’s foreign minister, Faisal bin Farhan al-Saud, is set to visit Islamabad soon.
The foreign minister said the visit reflects that the ties between Islamabad and Riyadh are “further strengthening”, adding that the two countries have “deep, historical and fraternal ties”. Qureshi once again denied pressure on Pakistan to recognise Israel. “Pakistan’s stance on Israel is clear and we stick to it.”
