Pakistan’s foreign policy is inherently no-interventionist. Yet it has always been unequivocal in its political, diplomatic and humanitarian support for Muslims in Palestine, Kashmir and recently in Yemen. Saudi Arabia is a brotherly Muslim country with an immutable religious reverence, therefore its call for helps needs to be considered with utmost sincerity. This is what our civilian and military leadership is thinking at the moment.
Pakistan’s leadership and Pakistanis are sincere in defending the territorial sanctity of the holy land but in the given situation of unrest in Yemen or Afghanistan, Pakistan has to play a larger role. Pakistan’s role and actions should also justify its traditional policy of non-intervention and sincerity for the plight of the Muslim Ummah.
Our leadership has rightly urged the need for a political solution to the Kashmir and Palestine Issues or the Yemeni Crisis while using the available diplomatic tools of international organizations like the UN and the OIC.
