Pakistan stands firmly by its principle stance on Palestine issue: FM Qureshi

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Thursday, reiterated Pakistan’s principle stance on Palestine issue and the two-state solution in accordance with the United Nations (UN) resolutions.

FM Shah Mamood Qureshi took to social media to reaffirm Pakistan’s stand on Kashmir issue and that it backs two-state solution in accordance with the UN resolutions.

The Minister stressed upon Palestinian’s right to self-determination, and called for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.

Qureshi highlighted that the independent Palestinian state must be established on internationally agreed parameters with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.

It is to be noted that Prime Minister Imran Khan on August 19th last month, rejected any possibility of Pakistan’s recognition of Israel.

“Our stance is clear, our stance was clearly defined by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah in 1948. We will never recognize Israel until Palestinians are given their right to a just settlement as per the two-nation theory,” he said.

The development comes as earlier, United Arab Emirates (UAE) announced that it will be normalizing its relations with the State of Israel, establishing formal diplomatic, political and economic relations with the Jewish state.
