ISLAMABAD: Opposition Leader In National Assembly (NA) Shahbaz Sharif has declared Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi statement regarding Saudi Arabia as irresponsible.
Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) President Shahabz Sharif said that the statement against Saudi Arabia who always remained friend of Pakistan is lamentable, condemnable and against the national and country’s interests.
Shahbaz Sharif said that Pakistan and Saudi Arabia enjoyed historical and strategic relations based on mutual trust while Saudi Arabia always stood with and supported Pakistan in every difficulty and testing times including the time of atomic tests conducted back in 1998.
He said that the nation has concerns regarding the incumbent government relations with Saudi Arabia while he added that statement against brotherly country on media is highly irresponsible and a diplomatic blunder.
Shahbaz said that the government attitude is against the unity of Muslim Ummah, its interests and against the key interests of the country.
He said that Pakistan always played a role for unity of the Muslim Ummah and solving their differences claiming that the present government has also committed this kind of things with other countries as well.
Shahbaz suggested to say sorry to Saudi Arabia and matters be resolved amicably, with wisdom and with the best manner possible.
