ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan thinks that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is more popular than him.

“I woke up this morning, looked at my mobile phone and realised that the (Saudi crown prince) would’ve gotten more votes than me if he contested the elections in Pakistan,” said Imran Khan while addressing a press conference with Mohammed bin Salman prior to his departure.

The crown prince came to Pakistan for a two-day visit on Sunday evening. During the visit, the countries signed agreements worth $20 billion and the crown prince allowed the release of 2,107 Pakistanis incarcerated in Saudi jails. The premier told the crown prince to consider Pakistan as his “second home.”
