“It is because of Pakistan’s decision to remain neutral that it got encouragement from both [Saudi Arabia and Iran]”, Shah was quoted as saying.
Qureshi stated that Pakistan would play ‘responsible role’ in Yemen dispute and would continue to play role of mediator to diffuse tensions.
“There exists curiosity [among stakeholders] on China’s visit. We departed to China with four-point agenda and came back with positive developments”, Shah told upper house of the parliament.
