Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has been continuously trying to reconcile between his ‘two Muslim brothers’ Saudi Arabia and Iran for the past few days, but he has failed in his efforts. Saudi Arabia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir has dismissed reports of talks with Iran in Pakistan’s mediation.

According to a report published by the Middle East Eye, the Saudi MoS said, “We are not involved in any mediation. People bring their ideas to us and we give them our answers. We tell in our answer that what we want from Iran. Instead of talking, we want to see it taking concrete action.”

Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir said Iran-made missiles were used in the attack on Saudi oil plants in September and Tehran should stop spreading violence around the world.

Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir said, “If Iran wants us to accept the talks, it should behave like a normal country by following international laws.”

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan had emphasised on the unity of the Muslim world, saying that Pakistan was not only ready to facilitate talks between the two countries but also to organise a meeting of representatives of the Sunni and Shi’ah countries in Islamabad.

Prime Minister Khan is seen trying to lead the Muslim world. Recently, there were reports that Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman was angry with Khan when he raised Islamic issues with Malaysia and Turkey at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) forum in New York.

At the UNGA, Imran Khan met Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohamad where the three leaders together discussed the issues of the Muslim world. To fight ‘Islamophobia’, the three leaders talked also about opening an English-language channel for propaganda. After this, some reports said that Saudi Arabia did not like the fact that Khan went ahead with his plans, taking into confidence Turkey and Malaysia without consulting it.

Pakistan has tried unsuccessfully to mediate between Saudi Arabia and Iran many times before.
