Talking to the Saudi Foreign Minister, Prime Minister expressed the confidence that the decisions taken during the visit of Saudi Crown Prince to Pakistan regarding release of 2107 Pakistani prisoners and increase in Hajj quota to 200.000 would be implemented in a smooth and timely manner. During his trip, sources said that Jubeir will call on Prime Minister Imran Khan and also meet Chief of Army Staff (CoAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa to exchange views on regional security situation in the wake of Pakistan-India tension.
The decision comes amid increased worldwide pressure on Pakistan to clamp down on terror following the 14 February suicide auto bombing, claimed by Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), in Pulwama, which left more than 40 Indian paramilitary personnel dead.
"India has also proposed that a technical level discussion on the alignment of the corridor be held on the same day on the sidelines of this meeting", the MEA said. "In 2030, Pakistan will be next to two huge economies, China and India".
India launched a counter-terror operation, with the Air Force striking a Jaish-e-Mohammed camp in Pakistan's Balakot on February 26.
Pakistan responded the next day by striking non-military targets on the Indian side of the Line of Control (LoC).
