Pakistan Gets Rich Dividends From The Arabs For Ignoring The Malaysian Summit

Published

on

Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan left Islamabad after a successful visit to Pakistan. Al Nahyan met Pakistani PM Imran Khan and later few away from Nur Khan Airbase.

Earlier, PM Imran Khan received the crown prince at the Nur Khan Airbase alongside various government officials. Setting aside protocol, PM Khan Imran personally drove the crown prince akin to how he drove the  Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman from the airbase.

The crown prince held a one-on-one meeting with PM Imran followed by a luncheon hosted by the premier. In a tweet via his official account, Sheikh Mohamed said he met his “friend Prime Minister Imran Khan” and discussed “regional and international issues of mutual interest as well as ways to enhance bilateral ties”.

UAE’s Ambassador to Pakistan, Hamad Obaid Alzaabi said it would be a daylong official visit for “strengthening the bonds of friendship between the two brotherly countries”. The UAE has already pledged billions of dollars to Pakistan in assistance.

Earlier, Saudi Arabia pledged to convene a meeting of the foreign ministers of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation on Kashmir, in an apparent move by Riyadh to please Pakistan which skipped a recent summit of Muslim nations in Malaysia seen by Riyadh as an attempt to create a new bloc to replace the dysfunctional OIC led by it.

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan conveyed this to his Pakistani counterpart, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, during a recent meeting. He was on a day-long visit to Islamabad to convey the Saudi leadership’s gratitude to Pakistan for not participating in the recently held Kuala Lumpur summit of Muslim nations in view of the Gulf Kingdom’s reservations.

Prime Minister Imran Khan had confirmed Pakistan’s participation in the summit hosted by Malaysia but skipped the event due to pressure exerted by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
