    ISLAMABAD – Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Sunday has reached Mashhad following the directives of Prime Minister Imran Khan to defuse Middle East tensions between Iranian regime and the U.S.

    The foreign minister was received by deputy Governor of Khorasan Razavi on his arrival.

    Mr Qureshi will hold talks with his counterparts in Iran and Saudi Arabia to convey Pakistan s desire to help in de-escalating the situation.

    During his visit to Tehran, the foreign minister will meet Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to exchange views on the evolving situation in the region.

    Tomorrow, he will visit Riyadh to hold talks with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud and exchange views regarding regional peace and stability.

    The recent developments seriously endanger peace and security in an already volatile region and underscore the need for immediate and collective efforts for a peaceful resolution.

    During these visits, Mr Qureshi will share Pakistan’s perspective on the current situation by stressing the imperative of avoiding any conflict.

    He will convey Pakistan’s readiness to support all efforts that facilitate resolution of differences and disputes through political and diplomatic means.

    Earlier, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in a telephonic conversation with Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Saturday extended condolences on the Quetta mosque blast, and praised Pakistan’s effort for de-escalating tensions in the region.

    Turkish FM expressed grief on the terror attack in the provincial capital of Balochistan which claimed many innocent lives. He condemned the loss of valuable lives and expressed solidarity of Turkey with Pakistan on this tragic incident.

    The two Foreign Ministers also exchanged views on the regional situation, with a particular focus on recent developments in the Middle East.

    Meanwhile, Mevlut also ensured full support of Turkey to Pakistan on establishing peace in the region following the killing of the Iranian top military commander, Qasem Soleimani, by the US. He appreciated Pakistan‘s endeavours and expressed Turkey‘s support to all efforts for promoting peace and stability in Mideast.

    Qureshi also apprised his counterpart of his upcoming tours of Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United States. Similarly, Turkish FM briefed his Pakistani counterpart on his recent visit to Iraq during which the situation in the region was discussed.

    Bhai poori government thori oth ke Iran chali gayi hai..... Foreign minister is on a foreign visit. That's his job.


    As for listening to us IK's successful diplomacy brought SA and Iran back from brink of war just late last year so I'm sure they listen to us sufficiently.

    There is silent back door diplomacy going on inbetween Saudia Arab and Iran for the last few months. This visit will try to ensure its continuity after latest US Iran spat.

    I think it's a good move. Firstly we trying to solve a beef between 2 Muslim countries and saving millions of Muslims across Middle East at least that's the intention. Dusra k Dunya hamay aik amn pasand mature mulk janaygi. Behtar image banayga Dunya k saamnay.

    He is doing what other nation asking him to do. It is fact, Saudi getting ripoff due to defence agreements, UAE is scared of CPEC project and oil demands is sluggish in the market. Also private sector is not booming. It's all game of economics.
    And we worried for others as usual, after a while someone through few dharm in our jholi and will be happy.
