Saudis come to Musharraf�s rescue

* King Abdullah calls on Pakistani leadership to abide by agreement
* Any step against former president could affect Pak-Saudi ties, political stability in Pakistan

Daily Times Monitor

LAHORE: The Saudi authorities have formally sent a message to the Pakistani leadership that they want stability in Pakistan, with King Abdullah urging all stakeholders to abide by an agreement that rules out any action against former president Pervez Musharraf, reported a private TV channel on Tuesday.

Saudi royal family sources said that during a meeting between Interior Minister Rehman Malik and the Saudi king, a �clear message� was given to the government that a confrontation between the PPP and the PML-N and any step against Musharraf could affect the country�s political stability.

The channel reported that the Saudi king played the role of a guarantor at the time of Musharraf�s resignation and assured the former president that no action would be taken against him. The king said if a party or an individual backed out of the agreement reached, Pak-Saudi relations would be affected.

Nawaz travels to Saudi Arabia next week to hold meetings with officials, who would �force him to abide by the agreement�, said the sources, adding that the Saudi king wanted to defuse the tensions because he had been told Musharraf was considering making important disclosures about Nawaz and President Asif Ali Zardari in London that included talk of Saudi Arabia as well.

Musharraf � who is currently in Saudi Arabia � met the Saudi intelligence chief, who was an important player in Nawaz�s return to Pakistan, and discussed issues related to his trial.
