Chief of the Army Staff Gen. Raheel Sharif has said that parliament would decide the role of Pakistan in the conflict in Yemen.


Talking to a group of reporters at the presidency after a reception hosted by President Mamnoon Hussain in honour of Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena, the army chief said: “The debate is going on; let us see what will be decided.”

Gen. Raheel’s remarks came at a time when a joint sitting of parliament is debating the conflict in Yemen and whether Pakistan should meet Saudi Arabia’s request to join a coalition of Arab states trying to flush out Houthi rebels.

Answering a question about the Zarb-i-Azb military operation in tribal areas, the army chief said it was progressing smoothly. “You will hear good news about the operation,” he said.

“It will be completed successfully soon,” he added.
