Islamabad: Pakistan strongly condemns the recent attempt by the Houthi militants to target Abha International Airport in Saudi Arabia, which was intercepted by the Coalition forces. Unfortunately the incident caused several injuries and damage to a civilian plane. We wish speedy recovery to those injured in the incident.

We call for immediate cessation of these attacks that violate the international law and threaten peace and security of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the region.

Pakistan reaffirms its full support and solidarity with the brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against any threat to its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The two Foreign Ministers will exchange views on the evolving situation in Afghanistan. The talks will also cover bilateral matters.

In the backdrop of recent developments in Afghanistan, Pakistan and The Netherlands have been in close contact. The two Foreign Ministers had telephonic conversation on 21 August 2021. Prime Minister Imran Khan and Prime Minister Mark Rutte also exchanged views on the evolving situation in Afghanistan on 18 August 2021.

Pakistan has extended full facilitation to The Netherlands in its efforts for evacuation of diplomatic and other personnel from Afghanistan.
