Pakistan should only take part in easing Saudi-Iran tensions: Imran Khan


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Friday demanded that instead of being a party, Pakistan should play a role to ease tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran.


Briefing the media after meeting Saudi and Iranian ambassadors separately, PTI chief said that both countries are blaming each other for the tensions. He said that the government must clear its stance over growing tensions between both countries.

The PTI chief said Pakistan must not be a part of anyone else’s proxy war, adding that Iran should also have been taken into confidence over 34-countries alliance against terrorism.

Imran Khan said the threat of sectarianism will loom over Pakistan if the tensions in the Middle East rise. He said Prime Minister’s Indian friend has blamed Pakistan’s intelligence agencies for Pathankot airbase attack, adding that an enemy is better than such a friend.
