WEB DESK: Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia Adel bin Ahmed al-Jubeir has reached Islamabad Thursday, Aaj News reported.
The minister was expected to land in Islamabad at 3 pm but could not arrive in time due to his busy schedule.
Al Jubeir was received by Prime Minister’s Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz at Noor Khan Airbase, Rawalpindi.
Mr Jubeir has arrived in Islamabad to discuss the situation in the Middle East and to take Pakistan into confidence on the 34-nation military alliance recently formed by Saudi Arabia to fight against terrorism.
Besides holding talks with Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, the Saudi minister will also call on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Jubeir was originally supposed to visit last Sunday but delayed his trip due to the situation arising out of escalation in tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran following the execution of a prominent Shia cleric by the Kingdom.
