  • Description

    King Khalid of Saudi Arabia met Pakistan's Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto on Monday (11 October), but the official statement released afterwards made no mention of a large scale financial loan from Saudi Arabia which Pakistan is believed to be hoping for.

    SYNOPSIS: At the meeting, which took place at Prime Minister Bhutto's secretariat in Rawalpindi, the two men discussed relations between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia and the regional and world situations. An official statement after the meeting said the talks were marked by complete confidence and close cordiality reflecting the warmth and understanding between the two moslem nations.

    Reuters News Agency quoting diplomatic sources has said Pakistan would like Saudi Arabia's help in buying one hundred A-7 fighter bombers from the United States, and setting up a Pakistan arms industry supported by Arab money and French technology.

    A few hours earlier in Islamabad, the Saudi King was treated to a spectacular mass gymnastic display performed in his honour. It was part of the lavish arrangements made by the Pakistan government for his six-day state visit. 20,000 Pakistani youths had been practicing for the occasion for ten weeks under the supervision of eight North Korean gymnastic specialists. The display was ordered by Prime Minister Bhutto who was greatly impressed by similar displays during a recent visit to North Korea.
