Prime Minister Imran Khan said Wednesday he had asked Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi to visit Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the United States to tell their leaders that Pakistan was “ready to play its role for peace but it can never again be part of any war”.
In a tweet shared Wednesday evening, he wrote: “I have asked FM Qureshi to visit Iran, KSA & USA to meet with respective foreign ministers, Secretary of State.”
He added that he had also asked Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa “to contact relevant military leaders to convey a clear message: Pakistan is ready to play it’s role for peace but it can never again be part of any war.” Earlier in the day, he had expressed deep concern over the US-Iran tensions and called for a de-escalation between the two countries, reiterating that Pakistan would not take part in any conflict.
