Saudi Arabia sends over 100 guards ahead of Crown Prince’s visit to Pakistan

 The Crown Prince is expected to stay at the Prime Minister’s House, where a gym has also been set up for him.

ISLAMABAD: Days ahead of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s visit to Pakistan, as many as 123 Saudi Arabian Royal Guards arrived in Islamabad to ensure his security in the country. 

The guards, according to official sources, who landed in Islamabad late on Tuesday night, will be continuously on duty for the security of Mohammed bin Salman, commonly known as MbS.

 He will arrive in Pakistan on a two-day visit on February 16, the Saudi ambassador here said.

 The Crown Prince is expected to stay at the Prime Minister’s House, where a gym has also been set up for him. 

To ensure foolproof security, security arrangements for the PM House and eight private hotels in Islamabad have been handed over to the Saudi Royal Guards and the Pakistan Army.

 During his planned trip, MbS will be accompanied by various other Saudi princes and key members of the royal family. 

“The delegation will be using 300 cars in the city, solely reserved for them, during the course of their visit,” reported Geo News, a local TV station. 

 “A team of doctors and a delegation of Saudi media persons who will cover Mohammed bin Salman’s tour have also reached Islamabad,” it added.

 Diplomatic sources have informed that a trade deal worth $14 billion would be signed between Pakistan and the Saudi Kingdom during the visit. 

The trade deal would be the biggest foreign investment in the country’s history. 

Last year, PM Imran Khan had visited Riyadh where he tried to persuade potential investors and secure funds to overcome Pakistan’s balance of payment crisis.
