  • A 50-member team of Saudi land forces will participate in the celebrations in Islamabad on March 23
  • This will be the third time Saudi troops will participate in the event since 2017
ISLAMABAD: A batch of Saudi troops will participate in Pakistan’s national day parade on March 23, as the South Asian nation prepares to commemorate the 79th anniversary of the Pakistan Resolution that was adopted in 1940 by the leaders of Pakistan movement who wanted a separate homeland for the Muslims of Subcontinent.

According to official sources in Riyadh, 50 commissioned and non-commissioned officers of the Saudi land forces will participate in the military parade. The Kingdom will also send 10 paratroopers to participate in the event.

This will be the third time Saudi troops will participate in the Pakistan Day parade. Previously, they joined the celebrations in 2017 and 2019.


During the national day parade, Pakistani armed forces display tanks, missiles, drones and other weapons systems.
Pakistan and Saudi Arabia enjoy close ties and enjoy strong defense cooperation. The two countries also hold joint military exercises quite frequently.
Earlier this week, Saudi troops won the silver medal at the third Pakistan Army Team Spirit (PATS) Competition, which concluded on Wednesday at the National Counter-Terrorism Center (NCTC) near Kharian in Punjab.
On Monday, March 2, Saudi Deputy Defense Minister Prince Khalid bin Salman visited Pakistan and held separate meetings with Prime Minister Imran Khan and General Qamar Javed Bajwa to discuss ways of enhancing strategic cooperation.
