MAKKAH: Prime Minister Imran Khan and First Lady Bushra Maneka performed Umrah during the premier’s two-day visit to Saudi Arabia.
The doors of the Holy Kaaba, sources said, were opened for the prime minister and his wife during the pilgrimage. The premier reportedly prayed for the country’s prosperity and stability.
After performing Umrah, the premier reached Madina accompanied by the first lady and his 11-member delegation.
PM Imran performed Nawafil at Masjid-e-Nabvi and paid respect at Roza-e-Rasool (PBUH).
The premier left for Saudi Arabia on September 19.
Earlier during the visit, PM Imran had met Saudi Crown Prince and Defence Minister Mohammad Bin Salman and discussed the bilateral ties between the two countries.
According to a statement issued earlier by the Prime Minister Office, the premier had also condemned the recent attacks on oil installations in Saudi Arabia, which cut the kingdom’s crude production and fanned fear of further instability in the Middle East.
PM Imran also briefed the Saudi crown prince on the latest situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir.
Premier’s 11-member delegation includes Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Adviser on Finance Abdul Hafeez Shaikh.
