Despite denial from advisor to Prime Minister on foreign affairs, Pakistan is no more a neutral country after it has decided to send a military brigade to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia who has imposed a unilateral war on Yemen and back takfiri terrorists against Syria and Iraq.
An important disclosure was made during Dunya News programme “Dunya Kamran Khan Kay Sath” according to which the government of Pakistan will send a brigade to Saudi Arabia to fight terrorism.
The initiative is not only a reflection of the Pak-Saudi defence ties but also indicates a major development in Pakistan’s involvement in the 39-country Islamic Military Alliance which is led by Saudi Arabia.
General (retd) Raheel Sharif has been given a green signal to lead the Muslim military alliance against terrorism. He is all set to hold the office from May, 2017.
Defence Minister Khawaja Asif had an exclusive talk with Kamran Khan in this regard. He stated that the final call to send troops to Saudi Arabia had not been taken yet, however, a mutual objective was to fight terrorism. “Pakistan and Saudi Arabia share a defence agreement from 1982”, he added.
The former Army Chief will remain as head of the Islamic Military Alliance. Sources suggested that the number of armed forces as well as their headquarters were all decided in recent developments.
