ISLAMABAD: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is encouraging its businessmen to take advantage of investment opportunities in Pakistan, a report on the Radio Pakistan website quoted the Saudi ambassador-designate to Pakistan Abdullah Zahrani.

In a message released on the eve of Saudi Arabia's national day, the envoy said that prospects for an economic relationship between the two countries are wide-ranging.

He said that Pakistan and KSA enjoy excellent cultural relations ─ a factor which has forged a strong bond over time. He said the shared majority religion, Islam, remained one of the main dimensions of the relationship between the two states.

Zahrani thanked the Pakistani government for supporting the Saudi stance on the Yemen crisis and appreciated Pakistan's efforts against terrorism.
