Director General Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar will also accompany the PM and COAS during this visit.

The visit will come in the wake of a severe crisis in the leadership of the kingdom since some 11 Saudi princes have been arrested as Riyadh launched rare corruption purge in the beginning of this month.
