The opposition remained unconvinced with the Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s assurances in the Senate regarding Pakistan’s role as a mediator in the Saudi-Yemen conflict.

She added: "Pakistan publicly made this offer and Yemen refused it. How can Pakistan act as a mediator in the conflict when it is taking loans from Saudi Arabia?"
"Saudi Arabia could raise questions on Pakistan's offer of acting a mediator," she said, adding that the details of the loans taken from the Kingdom have also not been shared with the Parliament.

The opposition made clear their apprehensions were not addressed because Saudi-backed Yemeni faction of Mansour Hadi Abd Rabbuh had refused Pakistan’s role as mediator.
PPP leader Sherry Rehman criticized Qureshi's statement and said that the opposition's apprehensions regarding the matter were not addressed by the government.
"The foreign minister made a long speech in Senate and while it revolved around the prime minister's offer of acting as a mediator between Saudi Arabia and Yemen, he did not answer any of the questions put forth by the opposition," Rehman said.
