ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday hailed the comments of Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman that he is Pakistan’s ambassador in Saudi Arabia.

PM Imran tweeted: Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman won the hearts of the people of Pakistan when he said “consider me Pakistan's ambassador to Saudi Arabia" in response to my asking him to treat the 2.5 mn Pakistani's working in KSA as his own.

Speaking at the banquet hosted in honour of Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, Prime Minister Imran Khan referred to the problems of Pakistani Hajj pilgrims in Saudi Arabia and requested that their immigration should be done in the three big cities of Pakistan.

He also mentioned the problems faced by Pakistani workers in Saudi Arabia, whom he considered very close to his heart and special people.

He requested the Crown Prince to treat them as their own people.

Imran Khan also requested the Crown Prince to take measures for the early release of 3,000 Pakistani prisoners jailed in Saudi Arabia.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in response assured the Prime Minister that Saudi Arabia would do whatever it could to address those issues.

Consider me Pakistan's ambassador to Saudi Arabia, he further said.
