High level talks between the Saudi and Pakistan ministers formally began on Sunday evening in which both the sides discussed matters of mutual interest.

The Pakistan’s delegation was represented by Finance Minister Asad Umar. The Saudi delegation was led Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih.

Both the sides exchanged views on investments by billions of dollars to be made by Saudi Arabia. “The agreement will be formally signed when Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman reaches Pakistan.”

Asad Umar said the talks held with the Saudi delegation on ‘big investment’ to be made by the latter.
