Pakistan Foreign Office on Tuesday has rejected reports regarding American pressure on Islamabad to recognize Israel.
According to the details, Terming the statement as “fabrication”, FO spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said PM Imran Khan has “clearly articulated” Islamabad’s position that it would not recognize Israel until there was a just settlement of the Palestine issue — one that is satisfactory to the Palestinian peoples.
He said the Prime Minister had stressed that Pakistan’s policy in this regard was rooted in Quaid-e-Azam’s vision.
Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said the Prime Minister’s remarks are an unequivocal reaffirmation of Pakistan’s position on the subject, leaving no room for baseless speculation.
He said for a just, comprehensive and lasting peace, Pakistan will continue to support a two-state solution in accordance with the relevant United Nations and OIC resolutions as well as international law, with pre-1967 borders and Al-Quds Al-Sharif as the capital of Palestine.
