Oh isn’t that sweet – Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are in love. Truly madly deeply.
Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Sunday said the love and affection for the Saudi leadership and people could not be explained in words.
Pakistan and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) are tied in unbreakable bonds of religion and brotherhood and both the countries are standing shoulder to shoulder with each other.
Speaking at a function held in honour of Imam-e-Kaaba Shaikh Khalid al Ghamidi at Chief Minister’s House, he remarked that even if the world goes topsy-turvy, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan could not be separated from one another.
They will wrap their legs around each other and hold on for dear life as the world bounces and flips and lurches.
He pointed out that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif visited Saudi Arabia recently and held talks with Custodian of the two Holy Mosques King Salman, crown prince and other Saudi Leaders. He said the world saw two brothers meeting and speaking heart to heart like family members. He said earlier he visited the kingdom and held talks on important issues with the Saudi leadership.
Shahbaz said the meetings were a clear message for the enemies that Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are tied in inseparable bonds and no one could cause any hurdle or differences between them.
He didn’t say anything about Raif Badawai, or Indonesian domestics, or beheadings, or women not allowed to leave the house without male permission and escort.
On the occasion, Imam-e-Kaaba said it was an important occasion as he was present among people with whom he has close relationship. He said the sentiments expressed by Shahbaz would always remain in his heart. He said after coming here he has realised the love of Pakistanis for him and Saudi Arabia. He said the relations between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are everlasting.
