Imran Khan arrives for Saudi conference saying Pakistan “desperate” for loans

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday (October 22) arrived in Medina on the first leg of his visit to Saudi Arabia to attend an investment conference boycotted by other leaders over the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
Khan told an interviewer before leaving he was concerned at Khashoggi’s death but could not skip the conference because “we’re desperate” for possible Saudi loans to shore up Pakistan’s economy.
It is Khan’s second visit to Saudi Arabia in just over a month, but he has not succeeded in securing significant financial assistance to stave off a looming balance of payments crisis.
Islamabad has already asked the IMF to open negotiations for the country’s second potential bailout in five years.
Khan told the Middle East Eye in an interview published on Monday that he could not pass up the invitation to meet Saudi leaders again.
