ISLAMABAD – The senior party member of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and leader of opposition in National Assembly Syed Khurshid Shah seems to be convinced that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would not make Pakistan a part of Arab Proxy Wars.

Syed Khurshid Shah’s latest comment on the issue was evident that PPP did not want to give anymore hard time to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on and and off the floor.

Shah said “We should trust the statement of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif about not sending troops to any country.”

He was referring to Nawaz Sharif’s statement in which he vowed that that Pakistan would not send its troops to any country and it had not received any request in this regard.

“We should take seriously the statements of the prime minister on important issues,” opposition leader added further.

However, before Nawaz Sharif’s statement, Shah continued urging government to explain receiving of $1.5 billion mysterious grant from Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Although the federal finance minister gave a shut-up call to critiques of Saudi grant but due to contradictory statements of government officials a confusion prevailed in this regard.

Speculations regarding alleged Pakistani involvement in Arab Proxy Wars mounted when Bahrain’s king came to visit Pakistan first time in four decades.
