Saudi Leadership once again disappoints Imran Khan over Kashmir

"Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are bound in a fraternal relationship marked by mutual trust and understanding, close cooperation, and an abiding tradition of supporting each other", the statement added.

On September 14, the Abqaiq facility and the Khurais oil field in Saudi Arabia were hit by attacks, which resulted in the temporary suspension of 5.7 million bpd of Saudi Arabia's crude oil production, or around 5 percent of global daily oil supply.

On June 20, according to a New York Times report, the US Cyber Command attacked computing infrastructure Iran allegedly used to plan attacks on oil tankers in the Persian Gulf.

The US blames Iran for the attack, something Tehran denies.

Imran Khan was to arrive to Riyadh on Tuesday.

On Sunday, Imran met with Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran on a one-day official trip. Those sanctions came after Trump unilaterally withdrew the U.S. from Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers previous year.

"If Saudis accept a diplomatic solution, Iran will adopt a mediatory role in the issue of Yemen; but of course, the United States thinks that the era of milking Saudi Arabia is not yet over", Larijani said, speaking with Bundestag vice president Claudia Roth on the sidelines of the Inter-Parliamentary Union conference in Belgrade, his remarks quoted by Mehr News.

There have been at least four major and minor initiatives by Pakistan to mediate between the two countries since the 80s.

Iran said Friday the ship was targeted in a missile attack, a claim that has yet to be corroborated.

Former president Pervez Musharraf also tried to make headway during 2003-2004. Moreover, the United States would not be expected to attack an Iranian vessel in the Red Sea, something that could cause an environmental disaster.

The Saudi leadership appreciated the serious efforts of Prime Minister Imran Khan towards promoting peace and stability in the region and the impact of this initiative on the de-escalation of tensions.

"We've always been open to discussing anything with Saudi Arabia".
