Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), the Saudi Crown Prince, will visit Pakistan soon, according to an announcement made by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Friday.
The statements were delivered by the Prime Minister during his speech at the National Police Academy in Islamabad’s event marking the 48th batch of ASPs’ passing out parade.
According to Shehbaz, the government has restarted Saudi Arabian projects that have been experiencing delays over the past few years. He disclosed that the kingdom will invest $10–12 billion in building an oil refinery here.
The prime minister made references to Pakistan’s connections with Saudi Arabia and China, saying that both nations had always supported Pakistan during difficult times.
He said that “we are trying to improve our relations with the US” in response to the country’s ties with the United States.
It’s important to remember that the prime minister visited Saudi Arabia earlier this week on an official two-day visit to attend the summit known as “Davos in the Desserts’.”
In his speech at the parade, PM Shehbaz gave the assurance that the required resources would be made available to give the police the latest technologies and training techniques, and he asked the interior secretary to develop projects in this regard.
In addition, he emphasised that the counter-terrorism department (CTD) needs to serve as an example for the entire country and that the nation’s capital should contain a forensic lab.
PM Shehbaz appreciated the police’s contribution to the fight against terrorism and the restoration of peace in the country. According to him, police officers give their lives to keep the public safe from terrorists and criminals, and their sacrifices are not in vain.
He said that the CTD was founded in the province and is now regarded as a role model worldwide during his time as chief minister of Punjab.
According to the prime minister, “despite being gifted with all resources, Pakistan lags in development,” and to protect the future of the next generation, we must take lessons from the past.
Commandant National Police Academy Allah Dino Khowaja spoke at the event and said that 14 officers, including seven women, graduated today.
To prepare them for the demands of today’s world, he continued, the training of young officers has been designed to be academically and physically challenging.
Before it, PM Shehbaz congratulated all of the graduates and presented shields and medals to the officers who succeeded in the course. Anam Sher, assistant superintendent of police, received the sword of honour.
