He said that the Umrah pilgrimage would be resumed soon after finalization of the code of ethics and preventive measures to contain the likely spread of COVID-19 infections.

Minister for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Sahibzada Noor ul Haq Qadri said Pak-Saudi relations would be strengthened further in the coming days. Both the countries were bound in the relations of brotherhood and religious harmony.

He said Pakistani people pray for the good health of Khadam ul Harmain Sharifeen King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud. The minister felicitated the Saudi government for arranging safe hajj 2020.

Saudi government had banned Umrah pilgrimage after the spread of corona pandemic around the world and limited the number of Hajj pilgrims this year.

Earlier this month, Pakistan Army Chief also has recently visited Saudi Arabia.

DG ISI Lt Gen Faiz also accompanied him.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s August 5 interview with ARY anchor Kashif Abbasi had led people to believe change in Pakistan’s narrative regarding Saudi regime.

However, Pakistan government subsequently issued statements in a bid to dispel this impression.

Even former Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Awad al Assiri had wrote an article in Arab News.

That showed that Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s viewpoint had irked the Kingdom substantially.

But Foreign Minister Qureshi already clarified his position what did he mean.
