Pakistan expresses concern at escalation of tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran

Islamabad, January 04, 2016 (PPI-OT): Pakistan is concerned at the recent escalation of tensions between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Islamic Republic of Iran. The attack on the Saudi Embassy in Tehran, which is against international norms, is most unfortunate and deeply regrettable. It is the responsibility of states to provide full safety and security to all diplomatic Missions and their personnel.

Dark forces of extremism and terrorism can take advantage of any disunity in the Muslim Ummah. We call for resolution of differences through peaceful means in the larger interest of Muslim unity in these challenging times.
