Your Royal Highness,
We are saddened and shocked to learn of the passing away of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz.
The people of Pakistan share the grief of the bereaved family and brotherly people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and wish to offer heartfelt condolences on this sad occasion. King Abdullah was a great friend of Pakistan. He was revered by the people of Pakistan for his wholehearted support that was always forthcoming.
During our recent meeting in Riyadh, I was encouraged to learn that the King’s health was improving. I have, therefore, personally received the news of his passing away with a deep sense of grief.
King Abdullah was a great Muslim leader. His passing away is a great loss to the Muslim Ummah.
The people of Pakistan join me in praying to Almighty Allah to rest the departed soul in eternal peace.
(Muhammad Nawaz Sharif)
