Pak-Saudi Relations 

The Pak-Saudi relations are based on solid foundations of Islamic ideology and
traditional Islamic values.

The spiritual affection the people of Pakistan have for the Holy Places (the Kaaba Tullah and Masjid al-Nabawi) and the people of the Holy land reinforce the bilateral relationship between both countries.

Also, the ideological foundations of Pakistan further contribute to bringing both countries together and their people. Soon after its independence, Pakistan attained an exceptional and very high-ranking political status in the Muslim world.

Pakistan and Saudi Arabia have an unprecedented relationship, ready to help
each other at needed times and space.

This partnership is not limited to economic cooperation and investment pledges. It is a commitment in all fields like political, strategic, and military.

Saudi Arabia is looking forward to greater military cooperation from Pakistan and collaboration at almost all levels, including military training through joint exercises and drills.

Apart from strengthening the existing ties, the 2019-visit of Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman has opened many new and long-term avenues for Pak-Saudi relations involving future generations.

The foundation of this every relationship will help both countries to reorient their strategic relations keeping in view the rapidly changing geopolitical situation and new alliances in the making.

The evolving nature of the Pak-Saudi relationship warrants a new dynamism and diversification through enhanced political engagement, institutional collaborations, and diplomatic overtures.

Pakistan and Saudi Arabia can continue extending unwavering support to
each other’s stance on global and regional issues besides looking after the national
interests of each other.
