My latest piece examines growing tensions in the relationship between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.
I’m quoted in this story about Pakistan’s tensions with Saudi Arabia over Kashmir in TRT World today:
““It’s certainly possible that Pakistan will participate in a meeting about Kashmir outside of the OIC framework,” says Rupert Stone, a Middle East analyst, adding that a forum of Muslim leaders that met in Malaysia last year can be an option…The Kuala Lumpur summit seemingly pressured the OIC into taking a more proactive stance on Kashmir, showing it is a useful mechanism for raising the issue,” says Stone.”
In my latest story, Pakistan’s ambassador to Turkey and others respond to recent comments by the Indian consul-general in New York, who suggested recently that India should build settlements in Kashmir like those constructed by Israel in the Palestinian territories.
I recently had the opportunity to interview Pakistan’s former ambassador to the US, Sherry Rehman, on the sidelines of a recent conference on Kashmir in Ankara. Read the article here.
