To a question about the measures taken by the incumbent leader of PTI government, Shahryar Afridi said:”We are engaged with Saudi Arabia, UAE and Turkey and hoped that everything would be normal in days to come.
He said that announcement for releasing Indian pilot by Prime Minister Imran Khan, had opened a great debate there while a public pressure was also being observed in the war mongering neighboring state.
To another question, he said that we are fully confident that a better sense would prevail after the visit of Saudi foreign minister.
