UAE and Saudi foreign ministers are set to discuss the regional situation in Pakistan with the country’s leaders today (Wednesday).

Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Adel Al-Jubeir, Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, are conducting a one-day visit to Islamabad, where bilateral trade is also believed to be on the agenda.

Both are scheduled to meet with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and their Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi. Meetings will also be held with Pakistan Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa and other officials.

Pakistan Foreign Minister Qureshi tweeted: “The UAE and Saudi Arabian Foreign Ministers arrive in Pakistan today to discuss this grave situation while the EU Parliament has called for an end to the curfew in IOJK (Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir) as has OIC’s (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation) IPHRC (The Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission), in no uncertain terms.”

India’s government on Aug. 5 scrapped Kashmir’s autonomy, bringing the country’s only Muslim-majority region under direct federal government administration.
