Shehbaz and Dar will be in Saudi Arabia for the April 28–29 WEF special conference.

Speaking at her weekly media briefing, which was atypically held on Friday rather than the normal Thursday, Foreign Office spokesman Mumtaz Zahra Baloch made this announcement. She added that Professor Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of The World Economic Forum, as well as Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman had invited him to the conference.

Pakistan will have a valuable chance to showcase its goals at this event, according to the FO, particularly with regard to inclusive growth, global health architecture, reviving regional partnership, and the necessity of finding a balance between fostering growth and energy consumption.

For the 15th Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) conference, the PM will also travel to Gambia on May 4 and 5. He wants to discuss a number of global issues with the Muslim world during the summit, including as the genocide in Gaza, the right of the people of India-held Kashmir to self-determination, and the rise in terrorism and Islamophobia. Shehbaz will also probably emphasize Pakistan’s dedication to resolving humanitarian issues and defending the rights of marginalized groups.

In addition, Foreign Minister Ishaq Dar is expected to attend the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in the Gambia on May 2 and 3. It is anticipated that he would meet with counterparts from other Muslim nations.

Regarding current diplomatic interactions, the spokeswoman mentioned the Iranian president’s visit to Pakistan from April 22 to 24, where talks about collaboration across several domains were held. Strong bilateral ties exist between Iran and Pakistan, she said, and both nations have taken a united stand against Israel’s war crimes in Gaza and support an impartial investigation into the situation.

“Iran and Pakistan discussed cooperation in various fields, including the trade route of Gwadar and Chahbahar,” said she.

Reiterating Pakistan’s position on the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir internationally, the spokesperson addressed concerns related to the territory. Pakistan seeks the attention of the international community to the persistent breaches of human rights in the region, expressing concern over the situation in Occupied Kashmir.

Pakistan is committed to furthering its foreign policy objectives, supporting peace, and pushing for justice on regional and international forums, as seen by its overall diplomatic activities.
