$6B In Saudi Aid To Pakistan





Imran Khan - the newly elected PM of Pakistan - grabs $6B in aid money from MBS led Saudi Arabia. In the Kingdoms current quagmire MBS is no doubt happy to lend a hand to the Pakistan premier. The relationship goes back to the first days of Pakistan in 1947 and is often described as a special relationship. Perhaps this will allow the Saudis to finally insert Pakistani troops into Yemen. 

The foreign misdirect issued an official statement: 

At the invitation of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, His Majesty, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, the Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Mr. Imran Khan visited Saudi Arabia to participate in the Future Investment Initiative (FII) Conference on 22-23 October 2018. During the visit, the Prime Minister had detailed bilateral discussions with His Majesty, King Salman bin Abdul Aziz, and His Royal Highness, Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman. The Crown Prince agreed to the Prime Minister’s suggestion to reduce visa fee for Pakistani workers, which is a significant step towards enhancing Pakistan’s workforce in Saudi Arabia, as well as facilitating travel of people from both countries.

Expect Imran’s next move to be with China as he leverages his countries geographic situation to enable the $70B China–Pakistan Economic Corridor super project connecting the port of Gwadar to western China.
