Saudi Crown Prince telephones PM

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman spoke to Prime Minister Imran Khan over the phone Monday night.

They both exchanged their views on the situation in India-held Kashmir.

PM told the crown prince about the latest situation in the disputed territory. They even discussed the situation pertaining to regional security.

On Monday, US President Donald Trump spoke to PM Khan and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and urged them to reduce tensions over Kashmir.

PM Khan explained Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir to Trump, the country’s foreign minister said, days after New Delhi revoked the autonomous status of the disputed Himalayan territory.

“The prime minister held a telephonic conversation with the US president,” Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said while addressing a press conference. “He explained in detail Pakistan’s stance with regard to Kashmir.”

PM Imran apprised the Saudi Prince about the Indian atrocities taking place in the valley after the abrogation of the Article 370.

The telephonic communication between the two leaders also reviewed the overall situation in the region besides Kashmir.

New Delhi ended the autonomous status of its portion of the Muslim-majority territory in the first week of August, stepping up movement restrictions and cutting off phone and internet access to head off civil unrest, and igniting calls from Pakistan for the international community to intervene.

Earlier in the day, PM said that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project is a practical model of bilateral and strategic partnership between the two countries.

He said this while presiding over a meeting to review progress on CPEC projects, which was attended by Planning Minister Makhdoom Khusru Bakhtiar, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Petroleum Nadeem Babar and others.

During the meeting, Planning Minister Makhdoom Khusru Bakhtiar briefed the meeting about various CPEC projects.

Sukkur-Multan Motorway, Thakot-Havelian Section, East Bay, Express Way, New Fwadar International Airport, ML-I and DI Khan-Zhob projects came under discussion during the meeting.

The prime minister was also apprised about the projects including digitizing Pakistan Television, Orange Line.

Speaking on the occasion, PM Imran said that the CPEC authority is being constituted to ensure timely and uninterrupted work on the CPEC projects.
