Pakistan to send troops to Saudi Arabia on training mission

Pakistan to send troops to Saudi Arabia on training mission

The announced was made following a meeting between the Saudi Ambassador, Nawaf Saeed al-Maliki, and Pakistan's Army Chief General, Qamar Javed Bajwa.

Saudi Arabia had been demanding deployment of Pakistani troops since the start of the Yemen conflict in 2015, but Pakistan has been struggling to evade the demand despite a unanimously adopted parliamentary resolution affirming the country's "neutrality" in the conflict.

Pakistan is sending troops to ally Saudi Arabia on a "training and advise mission", the military said, three years after it decided against sending soldiers to join the Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen.

The ISPR insists that the new deployment and almost 1,000 Pakistani troops already stationed there would not be "employed outside KSA".

Considering the pressure the authorities here have faced, not much can be said about Pakistani forces staying in KSA for their intended goal only. However, Pakistan reiterated its intention to remain neutral in the conflict. "These or troops already there will not be employed outside KSA", the army said.

The Pak-Saudi joint exercise helped the participating troops from both sides to learn from each others' experiences in the counterterrorism field, ISPR had said. The exact number of troops has not been disclosed yet, but DG Maj.

It also quoted army spokesman Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor that the new deployment would be much lesser than a division, and that he would give details later.

People gather at the site of a Saudi airstrike that destroyed a flour mill on the outskirts of the city of Sa'ada, Yemen, January 22, 2018. The previous statement by FO condemned the Houthi attacks, showing Pakistan's stand against security breaches and terror attacks.
