ISLAMABAD, (MANEND NEWS): Pakistan welcomes the decision by the
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the State of Qatar to reopen the land, air
and sea borders between the two countries.
Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri in a statement
issued on Tuesday said that we also appreciate other steps being
taken by the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which
will contribute to resolution of outstanding issues between the
countries of the organization persisting for almost four years.
He said that Pakistan lauds the positive role played by the Emir of
Kuwait towards the resolution of the differences between the countries
of the GCC. His persistent and sincere efforts, and cooperation of the
GCC countries, led to this important and amicable outcome.
Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that we hope that the GCC Summit, being
held today in Al-Ula, will further build on these encouraging
developments and lead to enhanced confidence and cooperation
among the countries of the organization.
He said that Pakistan continues to accord high importance to its
relationship with the Gulf Cooperation Council, as well as its bilateral
relations with all GCC countries.
