Pakistan enjoys close brotherly and friendly relations with Saudi Arabia. Pakistan fully understands the imperatives and compulsions which led to their decision not to join the Security Council after being elected to its non-permanent seat for the term 2014-2015.
Pakistan agrees with the Saudi Government that there should be forward movement and progress on all issues including Syria; Palestine and other long standing issues like Kashmir.
Pakistan has always advocated an effective and feasible reform of the Security Council based on consensus among the members. The Council should be equitable, fair and democratic in nature.
The Government of Pakistan has always supported all efforts to ensure peaceful resolution of disputes and is confident that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will continue to play its role in maintenance of international peace and security.
