MADINAH: Malaysian Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim, arrived in Madinah on Friday to pay a visit to the Prophet's Mosque and to perform prayers.
Upon his arrival at Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Madinah, the Malaysian PM was received by Prince Saud bin Khalid Al-Faisal, deputy governor of Madinah region, and commander of Madinah region, Major General Fahd bin Saud Al-Juhani, in addition to several senior officials.
Ibrahim arrived in Madinah having left Jeddah earlier on Friday.
Upon arrival at the Prophet's Mosque, where Ibrahim offered prayers, he was received by the assistant general president for governance and development affairs at the mosque, Nabil Al-Luhaidan, and a number of other officials.
On Thursday, Ibrahim and his accompanying delegation met with Dr. Mohammed Sulaiman Al-Jasser, president of the Islamic Development Bank Group.
Al-Jasser said that the meeting reflected Malaysia’s strong relations with the IsDB, referencing the historic agreement signed by Ibrahim — who was deputy prime minister at the time — and the bank in 1994.
