Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan discussed the Yemen crisis with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in a telephone call, a day after he held similar talks with the Saudi king and the emir of Qatar.

Turkey has publicly supported fellow Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies against the Iran-allied Houthi insurgents in Yemen.

Sunni-majority Pakistan voted on Friday not to join the campaign although it remains a staunch Saudi ally.

During the 45 minute call, Erdogan and Sharif agreed to accelerate efforts to find a peaceful resolution to the deteriorating situation in the region.
