Pakistan to Facilitate Constructive Engagement, Qureshi Told Saudi Counterpart

RIYADH – Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Tuesday that during his “in-depth discussion” with his Saudi counterpart, he had expressed Pakistan’s support for facilitating a “constructive engagement” for peace in the region.
Qureshi, in a tweet, said he had an in-depth discussion with Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan in Riyadh during the second stage of his diplomatic mission to the Middle East.
“While reaffirming our strategic bilateral relations, I stressed Pakistan’s support for all peace efforts in the region and the facilitation of constructive engagement among all,” said the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Qureshi met his Saudi counterpart on Monday as part of Pakistan’s efforts to help defuse tensions in the Middle East amid heightened hostility between Iran and the United States.
Foreign Minister Sohail Mehmood, Pakistani envoy Raja Ali Ejaz and other officials from the Pakistani Foreign Ministry were also present at the meeting.
Qureshi met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran on Sunday following the murder of a prominent Iranian general in an American drone strike earlier this month.
