Islamabad

Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan on Thursday reiterated Pakistan’s stance on US-Iran conflict by making it clear that Pakistan will stay neutral.

Moreover, he has asked the Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi to visit Iran, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and United States of America (USA) to meet with respective foreign ministers and Secretary of State besides asking Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa to contact relevant military leaders to convey a clear message that Pakistan is ready to play its role for peace but it can never be part of any war.

Message to this connection was conveyed by Pakistani PM Khan in a tweet on Wednesday in which Pakistan again vowed not to become party in ongoing US-Iran conflict after killing of top Iran commander Qasem Soleimani in a US air strike.

Earlier the foreign minister of Pakistan Shah Mehmood Qureshi had also announced the same stance before in the Senate a few days ago.

On Monday while briefing the Senate on tensions in the Middle East that arose after the killing Soleimani in a US air strike he had made it clear that Pakistan will not become party to the regional conflict.

“The situation in the Middle East is very sensitive, fluid and concerning,” he had maintained.
