Pakistan urges int’l community to help Palestinians establish independent State


Pakistan has reaffirmed its full support to the Palestinian people’s struggle for self-determination and against foreign occupation and urges the international community to help them establish an independent State with Al-Quds as its capital.

Addressing a meeting of OIC’s Committee of Six on Palestine on the margins of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the festering wound of Israeli occupation and atrocities in occupied Palestine is the principal source of instability, tensions and conflict in the entire Middle East.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari strongly condemned Israel’s continued killing and wounding of Palestinian civilians, including children; violation of the sanctity of the holy places, the demolition of Palestinian homes and the forcible displacement of Palestinian families.

As the Chairman of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers, he said Pakistan remains ready to join hands with other member states in any move to stop the ongoing bloodshed and restore the human dignity and human rights of the Palestinian people in the occupied territories.
