ISLAMABAD – On behalf of the Palestine Government, the Embassy of Palestine on Saturday warmly welcomed and appreciated Prime Minister of Islamic Republic of Pakistan Imran Khan’s speech in the United National General Assembly, during his speech he termed the Palestine issue as a ‘festering wound’.
“The Palestine Embassy expresses gratitude to the Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan for such a strong oratory on the highest forum of United Nations,” a press statement of the Embassy asked.
It told, “On behalf of Palestinian people and the Government of the State of Palestine, the Embassy of the State of Palestine, Islamabad, Pakistan extends sincere thanks to Government and people of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan for their consistent support to Palestine cause, and especially to Imran Khan, PM of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on his recent speech on the floor of UN General Assembly.”
It further added a just and lasting settlement was vital, for the Middle East and the world. Illegitimate annexations of Palestinian territory, the building of illegitimate settlements, and the imposition of inhuman living conditions on the Palestinian people especially in Gaza could not carry peace to a disturbed region.
“Pakistan continues to support a two-state solution — in line with UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions, within the internationally agreed parameters, pre-1967 borders, and Al-Quds Al-Sharif as the capital of a united, contiguous and independent Palestinian State” it apprised.
It further esteemed every individual of Pakistan, including political parties, media, civil society, who were observing solidarity with Palestine making them proud.
