"Has Pakistan PM been given a new job? Seen him regularly chauffeuring around Arabs princes," quipped journalist Gul Bukhari on Twitter, after photographs of Imran Khan ferrying a Saudi prince went viral on social media on Monday.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman began his four-day regional visit by arriving in Pakistan on Sunday.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan along with cabinet members, Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, and other high-profile officials received the prince and his entourage at Nur Khan Airbase.

The crown prince was welcomed with a 21-gun salute by a contingent of the Armed forces amid much fanfare in the capital. A formation of JF-17 thunder jets and F-16 fighter jets escorted the plane of the Saudi royal after its entry into the Pakistani airspace.




The trip comes days after a suicide bomber killed 40 CRPF personnel in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama.

While receiving him, Imran Khan broke protocol and personally drove the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman in a Mercedes Benz to the official residence, where a welcome ceremony was held in his honour.

Others, however, weren't critical of Khan's gesture.
