Pakistan: Imran Khan attempts Iran-Saudi mediation
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is trying to reduce tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran, apparently with encouragement from Washington, with a round of shuttle diplomacy. Khan travelled to Tehran on 13 October for talks with President Hassan Rouhani and Supreme Leader (Rahbar) Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in what was his second visit to Iran this year; Khan had also held bilateral talks with Rouhani in New York in September, on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.
