    …it had summoned the Iranian ambassador to register its objections to reports in the Iranian news media that linked a visit by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, late last month with the kingdom’s execution of a Shiite cleric

    Flimsy pretences, we got ’em.

    Of course it’s also possible the Pakistani military is allowing the civilians to oppose getting involved and using this as a signal to the Saudis not to count on them (or pay more if they do). My read is that the Pakistanis seem to have been very reluctant to cross the Iranians and get involved in a Sunni-Shia war – the want to use the Saudus and anyone else they can against the Indians, not to get involved in a two front conflict by provoking trouble to their west. Erdogan is a different story…
