The Government of Pakistan is on its toes these days as Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman is gearing up to make a momentous maiden visit to Pakistan. The visit of Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman is expected to bring in Pakistan the country’s biggest investment to date.
Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, generally known as MBS in international media, is anticipated to be accompanied by several senior officials of the Saudi government. The delegation will also include other Saudi princes and dignitaries of the royal family.
With this, after years of dependence on Saudi aid, Pakistan is set to sign its first Memorandum of understanding on the trade deals and investment worth $14 billion that includes the set-up of an oil refinery Aramco at Gwadar by Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The security of eight private hotels and Prime Minister House where Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman will stay on his two-day visit has been handed over to the royal guards and Pakistan Army.
In a bid to become a pleasing host, the Government of Pakistan has arranged high-level VIP arrangements and protocol to woo their royal guests. As per some intriguing details circulating on media, the government of Pakistan has booked 300 ultra-luxurious vehicles including Prado and Land Cruiser to assist the royal family on their visit to Pakistan.
The Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman will, however, use his own vehicles that will soon be transported from the Kingdom along with 80 other containers of his belongings to Islamabad. Reportedly, five trucks full of MBS’s personal amenities have reached Islamabad.
A temporary gym has also been established at the Prime Minister House Islamabad. “A team of doctors and a delegation of Saudi media persons who will cover Mohammed bin Salman’s tour have also reached Islamabad,” the sources had added. As per the details, the Prime Minister has organized a luncheon in the MBS’s honor at the PM House while President Arif Alvi will host the state banquet at the President House that will be followed by a cultural show at Aiwan-e-Saddar.
Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman will be given a guard of honor by Pakistan military while Pakistan Air Force Aerobatics team Sherdil will welcome the royal guests with a fly-past show using JF-17 Thunder jets upon their arrival.
Security arrangements will be beefed up in twin cities during the royal stay. More than 1000 security check posts have been established. On 15 and 16 February, Express highway will remain closed while Metro bus service will remain restricted to Rawalpindi only. Mobile phone service of specific areas of twin cities will also remain suspended.
123 royal guards have arrived on Tuesday night prior to Muhammad Bin Salman’s visit. The royal guards inspected the security arrangements made by the government of Pakistan for MBS.
They will also be constantly on duty throughout the visit of the Royal family. The security of eight private hotels and Prime Minister House where Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman will stay on his two-day visit has been handed over to the royal guards and Pakistan Army.
