The Pakistan Prime Minister is on a two-day visit to Saudi Arabia to muster support from the Islamic nation on the Kashmir issue.

In Saudi Arabia, Khan met the Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and discussed Kashmir apart from trade, investment, and economic relations.

This is the second time that Khan and his third wife have performed Umrah. Last year, the cricketer-turned-politician married his spiritual advisor.

In May, Khan went on an 'Umrah' pilgrimage to Mecca with the First Lady during his visit to Saudi Arabia for the 14th Summit of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
