RT - Pakistanís Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said Iran and Saudi Arabia have indicated a willingness to pursue diplomacy to end their disputes after Pakistanís prime minister traveled to both countries. Tensions between the rival Middle Eastern states escalated following last monthís attack on the Saudi oil industry.

Qureshi said on Wednesday that both the Saudi and Iranian leadership indicated a willingness to talk after meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who traveled to Iran on Sunday and Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, AP reported.

Khanís mediation efforts come after Washington blamed the September 14 attack on Saudi oil fields on Iran, a charge which Tehran denies. The attack halved the kingdomís oil production.

Since then, Khan has attempted to play the role of facilitator to arrange talks between Riyadh and Tehran.
