ISLAMABAD – Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has hit out at opposition over issue of Saudi Arabia assistance package conditions

He on Wednesday stated that Saudis had awarded bailout package without any condition.

While addressing session of Senate, Shah warned members of both treasury and opposition benches that tensions in Middle East could affect Islamabad.

“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.
