The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) will extend a $3.2 billion deferred payment facility with Pakistan for petroleum products from the start of July, the PM’s Adviser on Finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh said.

The facility will be worth $275 million per month and will amount to $3.2bn per year for a period of three years, the financial adviser said.

In a message posted on social media website Twitter, Dr Hafeez Shaikh thank the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia for his continuous support for the people of Pakistan.
