PM Nawaz, Army Chief arrive in Riyadh

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif accompanied by Army chief General Raheel Sharif arrived in Riyadh on Thursday on a one-day tour.
According to sources, the visit will be an uphill task for both the leaders as they will have a tough time convincing Saudi Arabia on Pakistan’s opinion about committing troops for the conflict.
“The PM and COAS’ visit to KSA will decide the country’s relations with KSA for about the next five years,” a top government official told The Express Tribune.
“It will be an uphill task for the visiting civil and military leadership to convince Saudis on Pakistan’s point of view of committing troops for Yemen,” sources added.
Upon arrival, the delegation was received by Prince Mohammad bin Nayef Al-Saud, deputy crown prince and minister for interior, Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al-Saud and defence minister at the airport.
The premier was presented a guard of honour upon arrival.
