Pakistan evacuated about 500 of its nationals by plane from Yemen on Sunday during a brief pause in air strikes by the Saudi-led military coalition against Shi'ite Muslim Houthi forces, a Saudi military spokesman said.
"There can be no decision (on joining the military campaign) before the delegation's visit," one official said.
He said there were already around 750-800 Pakistani servicemen in Saudi Arabia but none were combat troops. He declined to comment about their duties and it was not immediately clear what kind of military support Saudi Arabia was seeking.
"Saudi Arabia had always helped Pakistan like an elder brother," Asif told a seminar in Lahore shown on television channels. "Pakistan will extend all support to Saudi Arabia if the country's security is threatened."Güncelleme Tarihi: 30 Mart 2015, 12:23
