Prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s five-day working visit to Saudi Arabia from Tuesday is to further discuss bilateral issues agreed upon by both countries during King Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud visit to Malaysia last year. The prime minister’s Office (PMO), in a statement on Facebook today, said the visit was at the invitation of King Salman. The PMO said Najib was accompanied by minister in the prime minister’s Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom. It said others on the delegation were Najib’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, his mother Tun Rahah Mohammad Noah, family members and acquaintances as well as his officers. “It is the intention of prime minister to perform umrah (minor haj) during this working visit; therefore, he has invited several family members and some acquaintances to accompany him to perform the umrah. “Prime minister’s siblings and acquaintances paid for their own expenses to the Holy Land. Only Rahah is in the same plane with him. “All their names have been included in the official list of the prime minister’s delegation for the ease of administrative affairs with the Saudi government for the umrah. “Prime minister and his entourage have also been given state guest status by the Saudi government.”
