A historic 3-nation Asia trip by the young Mohammed bin Salman.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman shared highlights from his recent historic 3-nation Asia trip on Instagram, which included Pakistan, India and China.

The young CP received a grand welcome in all three countries, received by the heads of state.

Arriving in Pakistan on February 17, Prime Minister Imran Khan not only personally received the CP - along with the Pakistan army chief - but also drove him to the PM house.

MBS received a glorious welcome as his royal aircraft entered the Pakistani airspace. Formations of JF-17 and F-16s of Pakistan Air Force escorted him as he arrived for his two-day official visit.

Pakistan and Saudi Arabia ushered in a new era of bilateral relationship by signing investment deals worth more than $20 billion during the visit of Saudi Crown Prince.

The CP ordered the release of over 2,000 Pakistani prisoners in Saudi jails at Khan's request.

In India, the Saudi CP was received by Prime Minister Narendra Modi - with his trademark hug.

Mohammed bin Salman said he saw investment opportunities of more than $100 billion in India over the next two years.

In India, as well, he announced the release of 850 prisoners in Saudi jails, and an increase in Haj quota for Indian pilgrims.

The Saudi CP visited China next, where besides touring the Great Wall of China, he signed $28 billion worth of economic agreements

This Asia trip was of great significance to the Kingdom as it aims to solidify relations in the East.
