In our previous story regarding tensions between Saudi Arabia and Qatar we questioned whether or not Pakistan will be following the footsteps of their fellow friend Turkey in joining hands with Qatar alliance. Well Pakistan has been put on the spot but not by Turkey but in fact Saudi Arabia themselves.
Saudi Arabia demanded Pakistan to choose a clear position on where they stand between the two rivals, during a meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Saudi King Salman bin AbdulAziz.
Pakistan has been very careful since Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries discoursed diplomatic ties with Qatar after accusing them of supporting terrorist groups. As Pakistan has close ties with both Saudi and the close Qatar ally Turkey.
However, Riyadh has firmly asked Islamabad to follow their footsteps and cut ties with Qatar. Pakistan however, replied that they would do anything necessary to ensure unity amongst the Muslim world but not cause unrest according to express tribune.
The prime minister will undertake visits to Kuwait, Qatar and Turkey to ensure a peaceful solution and play a mediator.
