Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has been given a royal welcome on his maiden visit to Pakistan. From Pakistani fighter jets escorting his aircraft to being given a 21 gun salute upon arrival, the welcome is one of the biggest given by Pakistan to any sovereign.
Deals totalling about $20 billion have been signed and both countries have reiterated the strong ties between the two.
Now, Pakistani Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry has tweeted that Saudi Arabia has ordered the immediate release of 2,107 Pakistani prisoners in Saudi jails.
