Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said there has been no misunderstanding between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, rather the incumbent government has removed the ones created in the past.
Talking to a private news channel, he said the elements desiring to disintegrate the Muslim world are creating such perceptions.
To a question about the perception of Kuala Lumpur Summit being raised as a parallel platform or against the OIC, he said it is not being held for the first time, rather Mahathir Muhammad had already organized such four sessions as his private initiative before assuming the office of the Malaysian Prime Minister.
He said Mahathir Mohammed has sent his foreign minister to Saudi Arabia to extend a formal invitation for the summit considering it a very vital member of the Muslim world.
He said such perceptions are being created and fanned by the elements who have reservations over the Muslim countries joining heads to discuss their socioeconomic development and exploit their potential in the fields of skills and technology.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said having cordial ties with Saudi Arabia and Malaysia and being an OIC’s founding member, Pakistan is supposed to play its role to improve the strained ties between the Muslim countries.
Meanwhile, Foreign Office has confirmed that Prime Minister Imran Khan will depart to Bahrain for paying an official visit to Bahrain on Monday.
The FO spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said that PM Khan will visit Bahrain tomorrow over the invitation of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
PM Khan will hold one-on-one meeting with Bahrain King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa. He will also participate in the national day of Bahrain during his upcoming visit, the spokesperson said.
On Pak-Saudi ties, Dr Mohammad Faisal has said Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are enjoying brotherly relations in religion and culture with a very strong history of relationship in behind.
He said the visit of Prime Minister Imran Khan to Saudi Arabia would further strengthen these relations. Dr Mohammad Faisal said Pakistan is effectively highlighting the dire lockdown situation and Indian brutalities in Occupied Kashmir with International Community especially with the Muslim Ummah. He said fascist government in India led by Prime Minister Modi is on back foot due to Pakistan’s effective foreign policy.
He said due to lockdown and restrictions, there is shortage of foods, medicines and other basic facilities in the Occupied Valley which is very serious problem for the world.
