A while back, Pakistan’s Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry announced that the Saudi Crown Prince has ordered the immediate release of 2,107 Pakistani prisoners in Saudi jails.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday night had made a special request to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to look into the hardships of Pakistani prisoners in Saudi Arabia.
On Monday morning, the Saudi Crown Prince promised to do “whatever we can do” for Pakistanis living in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman on Monday ordered the release of 2,107 Pakistani prisoners in Saudi Arabia with immediate effect.
“HRH Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman has graciously agreed to free 2,107 Pakistani prisoners in Saudi Arabia with immediate effect,” Qureshi tweeted.
“Cases of the remaining will be reviewed. People of Pakistan thank HRH for responding immediately to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s request,” the foreign minister added.
This step will lead to good relations between Saudia and Pakistan.
