ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 12th Aug, 2018 ) :Senate Chairman Muhammad SadiqSanjrani Sunday thanked the Saudi King and the government on award of scholarships for the students of Balochistan, saying Saudi Arabia had stood with Pakistan in difficult times and their everlasting friendship and relationship had stood thetest of time.

The announcement of scholarships for the students of Balochistan on his special request reflected the fact that Saudi Arabia attached great importance to its relations with Pakistan, he said in a statement.

He also appreciated the efforts of Saudi ambassador for promoting better relations between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan and the announcement on his part to double the scholarships for Balochistan students in 2019 from 50 to 100 and said such measures would help remove the sense of deprivation of the people of Balochistan, and provide research and education opportunities in the best universities to the province's students.
