RIYADH: Prime Minister Imran Khan met with Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman on Saturday, during the sidelines of the Organisation for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit.

The prime minister met Prince Muhammad bin Salman and the two personalities discussed trade, economic and political relations between the two countries.

It was agreed between the two in the meeting that the decisions taken during their last meeting in February should be expedited.

The prime minister and the crown prince both agreed to have the decisions taken during the first meeting of the Supreme Coordination Council implemented.

Praising Saudi Arabia for always coming to Pakistan’s aid whenever the country needed it, the prime minister thanked the kingdom for providing Pakistan oil for deferred payments.

He thanked Saudi Arabia for coming to Pakistan’s aid at a time when Islamabad’s economy was in dire straits.

Prime Minister Khan and Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman agreed to stay in touch on all issues concerning the two countries.

The OIC slammed the decision of the United States to move its embassy to Jerusalem. The OIC was founded in 1969, 50 years ago, by a group of Islamic nations.

OIC members are only Muslim states which use the platform to condemn aggression against Muslim states and promote brotherhood among one another.
