Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif says Pakistan had a deep commitment to the unity of Muslim Ummah and to the promotion of interfaith harmony and dialogue.

He sated this during his interaction with Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz, US President Donald J. Trump and other leaders from the Arab and Islamic countries in Riyadh.

The prime minister said that being the frontline state, Pakistan had rendered remarkable sacrifices in the global fight against terrorism.

He said the rising tide of terrorism and extremism is the most daunting challenge that the world confronts today.

He said the turnaround in Pakistan both on the security and economic fronts, with the last year witnessing the lowest number of terrorist attacks in a decade, could bring about the desired results in countries afflicted with the scourge of terrorism.

The prime minister appreciated the leadership of President Trump to make this Summit as his first overseas engagement.

The Prime Minister also exchanged views with a number of other leaders including the Emir of Qatar, King of Bahrain, Presidents of Tajikistan and Azerbaijan and Prime Minister of Malaysia. -Radio Pakistan
