Pak PM in Bid to Ease Saudi Arabia and Iran Tensions after China Visit

ISLAMABAD – Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is likely to make short visits to Saudi Arabia and Iran after concluding his three-day visit to China, Daily Times reported Thursday.
Khan will hold consultations for the trips to Riyadh and Tehran after returning home from China. Sources add that the dates for the possible foreign tours will be discussed during consultations.
The visit to Iran may prove to be very crucial as reports last month suggested that the Pakistani premier had offered to act as mediator in order to diffuse the increasing tensions in the Middle East.
The offer had been made after talks with United States President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman before Imran Khan addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
According to reports, Pakistani Prime minister will visit Saudi Arabia on October 29 to participate in a three-day Future Investment Initiative (FII) conference in Riyadh on the invitation of Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Saudi Arabian government has also invited Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the upcoming event.
Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Planning Minister Khusro Bakhtiar and Chairman Board of Investment Zubair Gilani accompanied Imran Khan on his visit to Beijing.
Pakistani Prime minister in China met with the Chinese leadership and exchanged views on regional developments, including the state of peace and security in South Asia arising from the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
During his visit, Prime Minister Imran Khan held wide-ranging bilateral talks with his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.
Pakistani Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Director General Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed were also present during the meeting.
