Among the recent diplomatic turmoil Pakistan, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia are in, the occurrence of such incidents escalates the situation. While Saudi Arabia and Iran conflict were about to result in war, Pakistan’s interference saved the region. Under Prime Minister Imran Khan’s sincere leadership, Pakistan is reviving its diplomatic ties with other countries. Earlier this week, on Wednesday, Pakistan’s friendly Saudi Arabia is bearing huge losses after a private bus carrying around thirty-nine foreign pilgrims collided with a heavy loader in Madinah.

Apparently, the Saudi official authorities recently managed policies to promote tourism in the country. Last month, Saudi Arabia completely abolished abaya rules for tourists to have a more easy and unrestricted experience. Since the tourism graph of the country seems to decline, the Saudi government is creating policies prioritizing tourist acceptance. Currently, the Pakistan/India clash, Saudi Arabia/Iran conflict and Turkey taking measures against the Kurdish militants is an evident proportion of political chaos.
