SUNDAY TIMES ISLAMABAD:The development comes after a telephonic conversation between Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Adel al-Jubeir about regional peace.

The Saudi foreign minister was earlier scheduled to visit Pakistan on Thursday (yesterday) along with an important message from the crown prince. However, his trip was later scheduled for today, sources said.

During phone conversation, Adel al-Jubeir expressed concerns over the recent escalations between India and Pakistan while urging to dissolve the crisis in the region. Sources said, the most likely purpose of the Saudi official’s visit is to ease the tensions between the two nuclear-armed states.
