The Senator Mushahid Hussain said in the Joint Session of the Parliament that there is no threat to the sovereignty of the Saudi Arabia. This is the internal conflict of the Yemen, so we should allow them to solve their conflict on their own.
We have already fought many wars; we sent our forces in Saudi Arabia during the 1990s when there was the real threat to the integrity of Saudi Arabia. We will have to configure the way for peaceful resolution.
Since inception, Pakistan has been acting as the leader of the Muslim countries. We have done much to unite the Muslims of the world, he added.
The war in Yemen is not new; the different tribes in Yemen have been struggling to gain power for more than 50 years.
Yemen is like the quick sand, it is just like the Afghanistan war which nobody can ever win.
Saudis concerns are very legitimate. Yemen to Saudi Arabia is the same as Afghanistan is to Pakistan, so we should try to give confidence to the Saudi Arabia that conflict will not escalate outside the Yemen and will not endangered the sovereignty of Saudi Arabia.
The policy option for Pakistan at this crucial time is that:
Pakistan should ask China to vote for ceasefire in Yemen in the United Nations, and proposed UN to help Yemen conduct re-elections under the aspics of UN.
Secondly, Pakistan and Turkey should jointly co-host the mediation between groups in Yemen, and invite the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Iran and other leading Muslim countries
