ISLAMABAD: On Wednesday, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told the Senatethat Saudi Arabia had not asked Pakistan to participate in the Yemen war in exchange for financial assistance.
“We have received an unconditional package from Saudi Arabia. No conditions have been imposed,” the minister said while responding to concerns expressed by opposition senators.
Prime Minister Imran Khan had only offered to play a mediatory role to resolve the Yemen conflict and his initiative has been welcomed by all the parties concerned, Qureshi told the upper house.
He recalled that former premier Nawaz Sharif too had tried to arbitrate in the Yemen dispute, but had remained unsuccessful.
