(DunyaNews) On the occasion of joint military exercise of 21 Muslim nations, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has proposed to form a NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization)-like military alliance of Islamic countries; the Kingdom seeks Pakistan’s cooperation to materialize the plan.
The Alliance will not be against a particular country but to combat terrorism and emerging threats like ISIS, Dunya News reported.
Pakistan has been entrusted to chalk out framework for the proposed military alliance. The kingdom has requested Pakistan to lead the initiative. Pakistan and KSA have agreed to continue consultations on the proposal. This remains uncertain whether the proposed alliance will be a further up-gradation of the already established 34-nation alliance or a different initiative altogether.
