The Saudi Arabia cabinet approved a preliminary accord to swap prisoners with Pakistan, according to Saudi official media.
The agreement calls for exchanging convicted prisoners between the two countries.
The cabinet also approved proposals for bilateral criminal cooperation agreements and a document to establish a Memorandum of Understanding with Pakistan on unlawful anti-human trafficking and drug trafficking.
According to the SPA, King Salman bin Abdul Aziz presided over the meeting.
Prime Minister Imran Khan returned from a trip to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in May 2021 with a signed Prisoner Transfer Agreement, an important diplomatic success.
A PTA is a bilateral contract between states which facilitates the transfer of prisoners back to their country of origin. In July and August of 2021, we saw two tranches of Pakistanis return home from the Kingdom.
