Pak­istani Prime Min­is­ter Muham­mad Nawaz Sharif on Tues­day ex­pressed his coun­try’s sup­port of His High­ness the Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s ef­forts to re­solve the Gulf cri­sis. This came dur­ing talks in Is­lam­abad with the vis­it­ing Qatari For­eign Min­is­ter Sheikh Mo­hammed bin Ab­dul­rah­man Al-Thani.

The for­eign min­is­ter briefed the premier on Qatar’s re­sponse to the de­mands of Saudi Ara­bia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt and the cur­rent sta­tus of me­di­a­tion ef­forts pur­sued by His High­ness the Amir. The prime min­is­ter ap­pre­ci­ated the “sagac­ity and wis­dom” of His High­ness the Amir, and said Pak­istan sup­ports these “sin­cere ef­forts,” ac­cord­ing to an of­fi­cial state­ment. “Pak­istan main­tains close, friendly and co­op­er­a­tive re­la­tions with all GCC (Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil) coun­tries and is con­cerned at the re­cent cri­sis in Mid­dle East,” added the state­ment. Fur­ther­more, Sharif said that Pak­istan wishes to see a di­plo­matic so­lu­tion to the prob­lem be­tween broth­erly Is­lamic coun­tries. Mean­while, the Qatari min­is­ter ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to the prime min­is­ter for the warm re­cep­tion and re­it­er­ated Qatar’s de­sire to fur­ther en­hance bi­lat­eral re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries. — KUNA
