‘Pak working to ensure peaceful Afghan transition’
Jeddah: Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, during a meeting with Saudi Arabian king, Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, briefed the latter about measures being taken by Pakistan for regional peace, especially in ensuring a peaceful transition in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of NATO forces.
Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Khursheed Shah, Pakistan`s ambassador to Saudi Arabia Muhammad Naeem Khan and other officials accompanied Ashraf, reports The Express Tribune.
In his first official trip to Saudi Arabia, Ashraf defended his party policy on various issues.
"The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) seeks to uphold democratic norms. The consensus reached on the recent appointment of a chief election commissioner proves that," Ashraf said, while speaking at a reception held in his honour by the Pakistani community and PPP stalwarts in Jeddah.
"The PPP-led government has been able to present five successive budgets and is fully prepared for the next elections," he added.
He urged the expatriates to invest in Pakistan, especially in the power generation sector.
Assuring that the present government will provide maximum protection to all foreign investors, Ashraf said that more investment-friendly policies will be announced soon.
