Pakistan is expected to bestow its highest civilian honor on Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Monday, a day after he signed multi-billion-dollar deals with Pakistan.
On Sunday, the crown prince oversaw the signing of unprecedented investment deals with Pakistan worth $20 billion just a few hours after landing in Islamabad on his maiden state visit.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan along with senior civilian and military officials received the Saudi leader at the Air Force base outside the capital city. Khan later himself drove him to the palatial prime minister's complex where the two leaders held formal talks before overseeing the signing of agreements between their two delegations.
Khan welcomed Saudi investment in areas of oil refining, petrochemicals, energy and other sectors.
