Updated 23 Oct 2021

Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived in Madina along with his delegation to attend the launch ceremony of the 'Middle East Green Initiative' (MGI) Summit, being held in Saudi Arabia.

In a tweet, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said that PM Imran was received by Prince Saud bin Khalid Al Faisal, deputy governor of Madina upon arrival and was "given a warm reception".

The premier also paid his respects at Roza-e-Rasool (Peace Be Upon Him), the PMO added.

PM Imran is in Saudi Arabia at the invitation of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz.

SGI, MGI events: PM to visit Saudi Arabia next week

A high-level delegation -- including Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Energy Minister Hammad Azhar and Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam and other members of the Cabinet -- is accompanying the PM.

In a statement on Friday, the Foreign Office (FO) had said that the PM's visit will carry forward the positive momentum of cooperation between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

The MGI Summit is being held at the initiative of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz.

"The event is the first of its kind in the Middle East region. It may be recalled “Green Saudi Arabia” and “Green Middle East” initiatives were launched by the Crown Prince in March 2021 aimed at protecting the nature and planet," the FO said.

"Prime Minister Imran Khan welcomed these two initiatives and offered to share experiences and lessons from Clean and Green Pakistan and Prime Minister’s 10 billion Tree Tsunami."

The PM will share his perspective on the challenges faced by the developing countries due to climate change, and will also highlight Pakistan’s experience of launching nature-based solutions to address the environmental challenges.

During his visit, the PM will have bilateral interaction with the Saudi leadership, with a particular focus on advancing economic and trade relations; creating more opportunities for the Pakistani workforce; and the welfare of the Pakistani diaspora in the kingdom.

The two sides will also exchange views on regional and international issues of mutual interest, the FO said.

PM Imran will also participate in an event on the promotion of investment in Pakistan and interact with leading investors and businessmen from Saudi Arabia and the Pakistani diaspora in the kingdom.

One expected our PM to be received by a more senior person than just a Deputy Governor.
