Saudi Arabia and Pakistan Strengthen Counterterrorism Efforts

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) has officially approved a collaboration agreement between the kingdom’s Presidency of State Security and Pakistan’s military intelligence agency. This partnership aims to bolster Pakistan counterterrorism efforts and disrupt the funding of terrorist activities.

Key Developments:

  • Cabinet Approval: The decision was made during a recent cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister MBS, highlighting the importance of this collaboration for both nations.
  • Following COAS Visit: This agreement follows a “highly productive” visit by Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Syed Asim Munir to Saudi Arabia in March, suggesting that the groundwork for this collaboration was laid during those discussions.
  • Energy Cooperation: In addition to counterterrorism, the cabinet meeting also approved a draft Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enhance cooperation in the energy sector between the two countries.
  • Upcoming Royal Visit: Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is anticipated to visit Pakistan in the near future, further solidifying the growing ties between the two nations. While there were earlier reports of a possible cancellation, Pakistani officials have confirmed ongoing communication with their Saudi counterparts regarding the visit.


This collaboration signifies a significant step in strengthening the relationship between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, particularly in the areas of security and energy. The joint efforts in counterterrorism are expected to have a positive impact on regional stability, while the energy cooperation could lead to mutually beneficial opportunities in this crucial sector.

Looking Ahead:

The upcoming visit of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Pakistan is eagerly anticipated, as it is expected to finalize this counterterrorism agreement and potentially pave the way for further collaborations in various fields. The growing partnership between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan holds promise for both countries and the wider region.
