ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan has expressed serious concern over the recent developments in the occupied Palestinian territories.
In a statement on Monday, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that Pakistan views the recent alarming developments – including harassment of people coming for prayers, arrests of innocent Palestinians and other arbitrary restrictions in violation of fundamental human rights – in the occupied Palestinian territories with serious concern.
The Spokesperson said that these illegal measures have seen an upsurge since the onset of the holy month of Ramadan.
“Pakistan condemns these violent acts carried out by the Israeli occupation forces and urges the international community for prompt action to protect Palestinians,” he said.
The Foreign Office Spokesperson said that Pakistan steadfastly supports the Palestinian people’s inalienable right to self-determination.
Chaudhry added that for just and lasting peace, it is imperative to have a two-state solution in accordance with the relevant United Nations and OIC resolutions, with the pre-1967 borders, and Al-Quds Al-Sharif as the Capital of a viable, independent and contiguous Palestinian State.
