Saudi, UAE Show Solidarity With Pakistan But No Support On Kashmir

In a statement on Sunday, the Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesperson said this upheaval is yet another reflection of India’s trademark hubris and the BJP government’s well-known smear campaign against Pakistan.

Early in September Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, was declared a terrorist under newly-approved amendments to the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. The move was supported by the United Nations, which earlier designated Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar a global terrorist.
