Both dignitaries expressed condemnation for the ongoing atrocities in the Gaza conflict and the oppression faced by Muslims in IIOJK. They solidified their support for the people of Palestine and Kashmir, who are facing brutalities and human rights violations at the hands of the Israeli and Indian forces. They called for the resolution of the Kashmir and Palestine disputes in accordance with the UN resolutions and the aspirations of the people.

General Asim underscored the robust strategic relations between Pakistan and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, rooted in exemplary historic religious and cultural ties. He said that Pakistan values its fraternal ties with Saudi Arabia and appreciates its role in promoting peace and stability in the region and the Muslim world. He also thanked the Imam-e-Kaaba for his visit and his efforts to strengthen the bonds of brotherhood and solidarity among the Muslims.
