Raheel Shareef Saudi-Led Military Alliance Head News
ISLAMABAD: Iranian ambassador to Pakistan has expressed reservations on issuance of No Objection Certificate (NOC) by the Pakistani government for appointing former army chief General (retd) Raheel Sharif as the head of Saudi-led military alliance, IRNA news agency reported.
Mehdi Honardoost told a section of media that it was correct that Pakistan had contacted Iranian officials before issuing the NOC, but it did not indicate that Iran was satisfied with this decision or it had accepted the same.
He said that Tehran had informed Islamabad that Iran would not become a part of any alliance like the ‘military alliance’ nor such kind of offer was extended to Iran.
He strongly believed that all important Islamic countries should come together to form a coalition of peace to resolve their issues rather forming a controversial military alliance.
