Pakistan Mediating Between Saudi Arabia, Iran to End Yemen War

Pakistan is mediating between Iran and Saudi Arabia in an effort to end the conflict in Yemen, Prime Minister Imran Khan announced in a televised address Wednesday night.“We are acting as a conciliator between the two countries to end the war,” he said.The idea for Pakistan to mediate was first floated by Khan in a previous trip to the kingdom soon after his election as prime minister, according to Fawad Chaudhry, Pakistan’s information minister.“Since then, Pakistan has been carrying out a Track II process,” Chaudhry said, adding, “we have been in touch with all stakeholders to the conflict.”The conflict in Yemen started in 2014 when the Houthis, a Shi’ite militia backed by Iran, seized parts of the country, including the capital, from the government in power that was backed by Saudi Arabia. The kingdom formed an alliance with several Arab states and started bombing the Houthis.
