Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrives in Pakistan

Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman wants to take control of Manchester United as early as this season, according to reports in the UK press.

A delegation led by Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani on Monday gifted Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman a gold-plated gun and a portrait of him.

Pakistan and Saudi Arabia will sign a number of agreements and MoUs in diverse sectors.

"Economy can not sustain without energy", he said, adding that the visit of the crown prince would take the bilateral relations to the new heights. He is scheduled to visit India Tuesday and China on Thursday and Friday.

Fighter jets escorted the prince's plane across Pakistani airspace and television stations devoted hours of live coverage to the royal motorcade and ceremony, where officials signed memoranda of understanding in energy, minerals and agriculture valued at about $20 billion.

He was warmly received by Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa. A formal meeting was held between the President and the Crown Prince, along with their respective delegations. "The recent visit of the prime minister and your visit has cemented the friendship between us", he said.

The two nations' relationship has in the past centred on oil-rich Saudi Arabia backing Pakistan's economy during hard periods, and in return Pakistan's powerful army lending support to Saudi Arabia and its royal family.

Saudi Arabia's powerful crown prince arrives in Pakistan on Sunday, the start of an Asian tour during which he will seek lucrative contracts and demonstrate he still has allies five months after the Khashoggi affair.

He was also set to meet representatives of the Afghan Taliban militant group to discuss peace negotiations to end the 17-year civil war in Afghanistan, Pakistani government and militant sources said.

Pakistan was the first stop on bin Salman's tour. The Saudi side praised Prime Minister Imran Khan's dialogue offer to India including the initiative on opening of Kartarpur corridor.

While Pakistan's powerful military has always been a reliable ally of Saudi Arabia, Islamabad is wary about being drawn into the war in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is battling the Iran-aligned Houthi movement.

After denying for several weeks that Khashoggi was killed in the consulate, Saudi Arabia indicted 11 people in the killing, including several officials close to the regime's de facto leader.
