Pakistan PM to visit

PM Khan will lead a high-level delegation during visit to Malaysia on February 3.
He will hold meeting with his Malaysian counterpart Mahathir Mohamed to discuss important issues.
The meeting will discuss issues relating to bilateral relations, trade and investment.
But, political observers say that it would amount to a damage control visit.
They say Prime Minister Imran Khan had skipped Kuala Lumpur Summit.
They also noted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s blaming Saudi Arabia and UAE for pressuring Pakistan to skip KL Summit.
Later, Prime Minister had reportedly made telephonic conversation with his Malaysian counterpart Mahathir Mohamed.

Turkey-Saudi tension

At the Kuala Lumpur Summit, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Saudi Arabia of pressuring Pakistan to stay away from KL Summit.

Regarding the absence of Pakistan and Indonesia at the summit, he said he wanted them present as well.

But Saudi embassy in Islamabad rebuffed the reports that the Kingdom had allegedly pressured Pakistan.

It had to issue a clarification on the allegations. 

According to its press release, Saudi Arabia strongly denied such reports as baseless and fake.
