Naveed Qamar led Pakistan-Iran Parliamentary Friendship Group is visiting Iran.

Intra-Muslim nations tension problematic
Furthermore, he said that if Muslim neighbors tension would also also causes problems for Pakistan.
He said former governments also had played role. But, in past, tension had never stiffened publicly to the extent we witness in recent months.
Pakistan mediation’s outcome?
Althoguh result of incumbent government’s efforts not shared, yet only a certain group at the upper level aware of it.
So, we cannot say for sure about the extent of progress in this area.
However, we may say it with cerainty that Pakistan is trying to reduce the tension.

Pakistan eyes Saudi Iranian FMs meeting
Prime Minister Imran Khan had hinted at progress in last week of October 2019.
Particularly, he said trying to arrange a meeting of the foreign ministers of the two countries to further ease tensions.
Although Pakistan has been trying its level best to de-escalate tension in the region, yet, Kingdom hasn’t appreciated Pakistan’s efforts. Instead, they discredited Pakistan.
Unfortunately, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has neither honoured Pakistan Prime Minister for his shuttle diplomacy nor made any comment.
Iran remains grateful to Pakistan
However, Iran made public its reaction to Pakistan efforts.
Notably, Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei lauded Pakistan‘s sincere efforts. He also made public how regional peace can be restored.
Comparatively, Iran Foreign Minister Javad Zarif publicly remained grateful to Prime Minister of Pakistan.
Meanwhile, he also thanked Imran Khan in a tweet.
Saudi monarchy part of US bloc
Unfortunately, Saudi Wahhabi monarchy remains a staunch ally of US administration while US preferes Israeli interests.
Due to that reason, US policy against Iran disturbs the entire world, let alone Middle East or South Asia.
Since Saudi toe the line of Washington DC and Washington DC follow the Israeli line, hence both want Iran also toe that line.
However, Iran emphasises that Islamic Republic remains willing to talk to regional states, instead of US.
Hence, pro-Iran Arab-Muslim world blame Israel for terrorism and escalation in the region.
Ironically, many Arab regimes have sacrificed Palestine for the sake of Israel. Factually speaking, they also sacrificed Islamic Ummah interests for US bloc.
