Pakistan and Saudi Arabia: Anatomy of a Unique Relationship - from Interpersonal to Institutional Engagement
Number: 56
Umer Karim


Pakistan and Saudi Arabia share a long history of close bilateral ties, bonded together by religion and a wide array of aligning political interests. Over the years, this bilateral relationship has matured into a strategic partnership, owing much to the blossoming of strong inter-personal ties between the ruling elites on both sides, a shared foreign policy outlook vis-à-vis both regional and international events, and collaboration in the security domain. With both sides realizing the limitations of inter-personal ties, a gradual move has begun to structure this personal connectivity into an institutional engagement that can cater for their respective strategic interests in a more comprehensive manner.
