ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has assured the Palestinian Ambassador Ahmed Jawad A.A. Rabei that Pakistan would continue to raise its voice at every international forum in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

Talking to the ambassador who met him in Islamabad on Thursday, the prime minister recalled the interim ruling of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the case filed by South Africa and stated that Pakistan had also made a verbal statement in support of Palestine at the ICJ.

The prime minister said that Pakistan had a historic and close relationship with the brotherly State of Palestine and it had consistently supported the Palestine cause at the UN, OIC as well as other international platforms.

The prime minister strongly condemned the ongoing Israeli brutalities in Gaza that have continued relentlessly since October 7, 2023 and called for an immediate end to the genocidal war waged by Israel against the brave and innocent Palestinian people.

Shahbaz Sharif expressed deep condolences over the tragic death of over 32,000 Palestinians including 17,000 children, as well as more than 70,000 injured by the brutal actions of Israeli security forces.

While welcoming the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 2728, the prime minister expressed disappointment that Israel had chosen to ignore the resolution and continued to brazenly violate it.

Pakistan has so far sent seven tranches of relief goods for the people of Gaza. Another tranche is planned soon after Eid.

The Palestinian ambassador thanked the prime minister and the people of Pakistan for supporting the Palestinian people which was a source of strength for them at this difficult time.

The Foreign Minister Ishaq Dar, the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant Tariq Fatemi and the Foreign Secretary Muhammad Syrus Sajjad Qazi were also present in the meeting.
