Islamabad Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan says his country’s efforts to end tensions in the region continue, but there are some spoilers who are against Iran-Saudi Arabia relations.
Speaking in the National Assembly on Thursday, the premier said that Pakistan is trying its best to improve relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia.
He said “Iran is our neighbor while we have good ties with Saudi Arabia so we are proud on our role” to bring these two countries close to each other.
Imran Khan emphasized the need to focus more on close Iran-Saudi Arabia ties. “But there are some spoilers who are against Iran-Saudi Arabia relations and want conflict in the region,” he warned.
He said there are crisis in Syria, Somalia, Libya and Afghanistan which need to be resolved.
Prime Minister said Pakistan would become a country to unite Muslim Ummah.
