PM Nawaz Sharif may leave for urgent Qatar Tour from Astana

ASTANA, KAZAKHSTAN: 

Pakistan will be playing the role of mediator in the Qatar Saudi Arabia row and the Prime Minister of Pakistan is likely to fly to Qatar in this regard.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that Pakistan will do all it can to amicably resolve the diplomatic crisis in the Arabian Gulf. And Sharif is expected to fly to Qatar and Kuwait in this connection.

Arab powers, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, took the unprecedented decision to cut off their air, sea and land links to Qatar on Monday, accusing Doha of sponsoring terrorism in the Middle East.

“Since Pakistan enjoys good relations with Saudi Arabia, Iran and Qatar, we will try our best to resolve the differences between the Arab countries,” Sharif said while speaking to journalists during a visit to Kazakhstan.

The premier said the Muslim world should play its role in ending the diplomatic crisis in the Arabian Gulf. 

Sharif flew into the Central Asian state on Thursday to attend a two-day meeting of the Heads of State Council of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).
