ISLAMABAD: Saudi Arabia Minister for Religious Affairs Sheikh Saleh bin Abdul Aziz, who arrived in Pakistan on Sunday to seek Pakistan’s assistance in Yemen war, is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today.
The Saudi minister said yesterday that Pakistan Parliament’s resolution on Yemen was the country’s internal matter, but said his country expects better from Pakistan.
The minister is said to be carrying a special message from Saudi King Salman bin AbdulAziz al Saudi for Pakistani government.
“Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are brotherly countries who have come out to help each other in the past,” he said. He said the relationship between the two countries will remain strong going forward.
His visit comes day after Pakistani Parliament rejected a Saudi request for military support in Yemen and called for a neutral stand.
