Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif headed for Saudi Arabia in the backdrop of a deepening diplomatic rift in the Middle East.
 
Sharif is expected to hold talks with Saudi leadership centered on deteriorating relations between Gulf nations after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates cut ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism.
 
In its earlier response to the Middle East crisis, Pakistan had stressed the need for unity in the Muslim world and urged the countries involved to engage in dialogue.
 
"Since Pakistan enjoys good relations with Saudi Arabia, Iran and Qatar, we will try our best to resolve the differences between the Arab countries," Sharif told journalists in Astana, Kazakhstan where he recently attended the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit where both India and Pakistan were admitted as full members.
 
On Sunday, Pakistan rejected as "fabricated and baseless" reports that it plans to deploy its troops in Qatar amid diplomatic tensions in the Middle East.
