Amid the raging controversy ignited by Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, the Chaudhry brothers on Thursday questioned the need of issuing a statement after which, they said, the government had to give explanations, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The PML-Q leaders also questioned the sort of diplomacy being followed by the government. “What kind of diplomacy it is that [you] started shouting while sitting in your own home,” they asked in a statement and regretted that the episode had made Pakistan a laughing stock. 

“There is no need of making everything public every time,” the seasoned politicians stressed and said the Foreign Office should have shown extra care in Pakistan-Saudi Arabia relations.

Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi reminded the people that Saudi Arabia had always supported Pakistan in a tough period. Why the issue wasn’t discussed with Riyadh privately, they noted.

Every patriotic Pakistani, they said, would foil the attempt to create fissures in Pakistan-Saudi Arabia relations, adding that no one had the right to damage the relations with the brotherly Islamic countries.

The PML-Q leaders also noted that it was considered antagonism and enmity whenever they pointed out the mistakes for correction purposes. “This approach isn’t right,” added the Chaudhry brothers.
