Saudi Arabia signs 20 billion dollar agreements with Pakistan

  •  Saudi Arabia signed 7 agreements worth USD 20bn
  •  in the first phase with Pakistan
  •  This has come as a surprise for many
  •  What made Saudi Arabia make such a move?
  •  Although these are just MoUs still
  •  and unless they turn into agreements they’re nothing significant,
  •  yet it won’t be surprising if it happens
  •  because political situation in the region is changing quickly,
  •  whether we talk about US withdrawal from Afghanistan,
  •  or the reemergence of Taliban, or Kashmir situation,
  •  or the longstanding dispute between Iran and Saudi Arabia
  •  And how can we ignore China’s growing clout in the world
  • At least US and the west can’t ignore it
  •  It seems that after India’s failure in Afghanistan and South China Sea,
  •  US is now pushing Saudi Arabia forward
  •  so that China’s influence in the region can be checked
  •  Experts say, a new game plan for Afghanistan is in place
  •  Question is, is Pakistan again going to be part of this game
  •  and be part of Saudi Arabia’s multinational forces in Afghanistan?
  •  How will that happen?
  •  I believe Pakistan should utilise every investment opportunity that comes
  •  but it must not ignore the countries in the region,
  •  whether it is China, Iran, Afghanistan, India or Central Asian Republics
  •  Pakistan’s survival, security and prosperity
  •  are linked with its ties with these countries
