Saudi Crown Prince distances himself from Man Utd takeover reports

"We have always said if the Holy Cities of Islam are threatened, Pakistan would go all out to defend the Holy Cities", Khan was quoted as saying. The amount of that kind of investment is United States dollars 20 billion.

Pakistan enjoys close ties with Saudi Arabia.

"We have been a brotherly country, a friendly country to Pakistan". -AFP Chief of Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa with MBS.

At the airport, a young boy and girl in traditional Pakistani dress handed the crown prince flowers. Banners welcomed him to his "second home".

Saudi prosecutors say the plan was masterminded by two former advisers to the crown prince.

The directive to establish the health center was issued during the Crown Prince's visit to Pakistan on Sunday.

Prime Minister Khan presented his cabinet members to Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

Relations since Mahathir Mohamad's upset electoral victory previous year have been strained by Saudi efforts to protect Najib Razak while he was prime minister. "It is big for phase one and definitely it (Saudi investment in Pakistan) will grow every month, every year in bigger numbers and it will be beneficial for both the countries", the crown prince said. The ceremony was held a day after Mohammad bin Salman signed investment deals worth $20 billion with Pakistan.

And the Crown Prince has finally spoken out to address the rumours.

"The future is exciting for both Pakistan and Saudi Arabia after joining hands", he said.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman is the latest to have been linked with an effort to wrestle power from the current American ownership in Manchester. Earlier, the Saudi prince also met a joint parliamentary delegation of all parties and discussed various matters of interest.

The President also hosted a luncheon for the royal guest. In response to Prime Minister Khan's request for Saudi Arabia to treat Pakistani Labourers as their own people, the Saudi prince stated, "Consider me an ambassador of Pakistan in Saudi Arabia".

The high-level Saudi visit comes at a time when talks are taking place between the Afghan Taliban and the United States over an agreement to end the war in Afghanistan.

But Saudi media minister Turki Al Shabanah has distanced the country from a takeover. However, some Pakistan officials said there were little chances of such a meeting happening.

Bin Salman arrived in Pakistan Sunday with an elaborate entourage that included several hundred luxury cars, two C-130 planes and special containers that shipped the prince's belongings ahead of the visit. They include MoUs on the finance and provision of crude oil and petroleum products, the financing of electricity generation projects, as well as those related to mineral wealth and renewable energy projects.

The functioning of the Supreme Council will be coordinated by the ministries of foreign affairs of the two countries.
