Pakistan announces no immediate cut in diplomatic ties with Qatar

Pakistan has no immediate plans to cut diplomatic ties with Qatar, a spokesman for the foreign ministry said on Monday.

Thecountry "has no such plans," the spokesman, Nafees Zakaria, said, following the severing of ties with Qatar by Islamabad's key ally, Saudi Arabia, and three other Middle East nations.

"At the moment there is nothing on Qatar issue, (we) will issue a statement if some development takes place," Zakaria said.

Pakistan in recent years has been caught between the feud between its ally Saudi Arabia and neighbour Iran.
