    Pakistan calls on Saudis not to destabilize the region

Pakistani Foreign Minister called on Saudi Arabia no to do any action to destabilize the Middle East.

Iran Press/ Iran News:  Pakistani foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Sunday has called on Saudi Arabia to be cautious about any hasty decisions that threaten regional peace and stability.

According to Iran Press, Qureshi who traveled to New York to attend the UN General Assembly stated: 'During his recent visit to Saudi Arabia, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan urged Riyadh to avoid any threatening act towards regional peace and stability.'

On September 14, the Yemeni Army targeted with 10 local UAVs, the Baqiq and Kharis refineries related to the Saudi National Oil Company Aramco, which led to the disruption of oil production in Saudi Arabia.

Following the operation, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, the spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces, said in a statement that the operation was carried out within the framework of the Yemeni natural and legitimate right to respond to the crimes committed by the coalition during the five-year siege.

The Americans, however, have repeated allegations against the Islamic Republic of Iran, claiming that Tehran was behind the Yemeni drone strikes against Saudi Arabia's oil facilities, which the Islamic Republic of Iran has denied.

Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen since March 2015 have killed more than 16,000 Yemenis, wounded tens of thousands, and displaced millions of Yemenis.
