Islamabad: Pakistan on Friday said the visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the country was delayed by a day.

The crown prince was scheduled to arrive in Islamabad on Saturday on a two-day visit.

However, the arrival has been rescheduled and now he would arrive on Sunday, the Foreign Office said without divulging the reason for the change.

It further said the crown prince "will visit Pakistan on February 17-18, 2019" and the "visit programme remains unchanged".
