Pakistan for sovereign Palestinian state

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has called for the implementation of the UN resolutions to pave way for a sovereign Palestinian state with Al-Quds Sharif as its capital. Speaking in a UN General Assembly debate, Pakistani delegate Asim Iftikhar Ahmad said solution to the Palestinian issue requires nothing less than Israel’s complete withdrawal from the occupied territories.

Referring to the grave situation in Gaza, he urged Israel to seriously reconsider its policies which were endangering the lives of the besieged Palestinian people and also the peace process.

He said it is time to turn a new page for peace and stability in this region and security across the globe for generations. The Pakistani delegate urged the international community particularly the Quartet to ensure that urgent steps are taken to remove all impediments for peace.-SANA
