ISLAMABAD: The Parliament will begin debating a Saudi plea for military help in Yemen in a while, a request that pits Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s staunch Saudi allies against a war-weary public.
Since Saudi Arabia asked Pakistan to join a Saudi-led military coalition that began conducting air strikes last month against largely Shia Houthi forces in Yemen, PM Nawaz has hedged his bets.
He had said repeatedly he will defend any threat to Saudi Arabia’s “territorial integrity” without defining what action such a threat might provoke.
To attend the Joint session of Parliament, all the political leaders have reached to the parliament house.
The session will get start in a while.
