Pakistan can mediate in Yemen war if stakeholders agree, Says PM Imran

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan met with Ambassador of Yemen Mohammed Mohatar Alashabi in Islamabad on Monday.


According to reports, relations between the two countries and peace in the Middle-East was discussed between the two.


The premier emphasised Pakistan’s desire to see a peaceful resolution to the war in Yemen, reports further suggest.


PM Imran also laid out Pakistan’s willingness to be a mediator in the conflict if stakeholders are in agreement.


The premier had previously said that the country would mediate in the conflict between the Saudi-led alliance and Houthi rebels.


“We are trying our best to act as a mediator to resolve the Yemen crisis,” he said during an address to the nation on October 24.


Last month, Saudi Arabia came to Pakistan’s assistance as it decided to deposit $3 billion in the national exchequer for a period of one year as a balance of payment support and agreed on a one-year deferred payment facility of $3 billion for importing oil.


The agreement was reached during PM Imran’s visit to the country where he met the Saudi leadership including King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. A host of bilateral issues, including regional and international situation were discussed during the meetings.
