Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ─ known as MBS for short ─ is paying his first state visit to Pakistan since becoming the heir to the throne in 2017. The purpose of the prince's two-day visit — which was originally scheduled for February 16 but began on February 17 — is to wrap up a series of multi-billion dollar deals with Pakistan in various sectors.
