Pakistan Calls for Independent Palestinian Homeland

Palestinian Homeland

ISTANBUL: Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ishaq Dar called for the complete withdrawal of Israel from all occupied Arab territories and the establishment of an independent homeland for the Palestinians based on pre-1967 borders, with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.

Speaking at the Extraordinary Meeting of the D-8 Council of Foreign Ministers in Istanbul, Dar emphasized the necessity of restoring the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.

He urged the international community to fulfill its responsibilities in addressing the worsening situation in Gaza.

Dar highlighted the need to implement the International Court of Justice’s (ICJ) order, which directs Israel to immediately cease its military offensive in Gaza.

Dar reiterated Pakistan’s unwavering support for a just, comprehensive, and lasting peace in the occupied Palestinian territories, grounded in international law and relevant United Nations resolutions.

He stressed that the full resolution of all outstanding Arab-Israeli issues is essential for long-term peace in the Middle East. “For peace and security in the region, the creation of a sovereign, viable, and contiguous state in Palestine is necessary,” Dar asserted.

He expressed deep concern over the ongoing violence and human rights violations against Palestinians, stating that there is no room for complacency or passivity in the face of the brutal murders, abuses, and forced displacements being inflicted upon them. Dar called for a united front to defend Palestinian rights and put an end to Israel’s “heinous and savage atrocities.”

The deputy prime minister highlighted the importance of this timely assembly of foreign ministers from eight significant Muslim countries.

He urged them to send a powerful message of solidarity with the Palestinian people and to spearhead a campaign for immediate international action to stop Israeli aggression.

Dar also emphasized the urgent need to open all channels of humanitarian assistance to the besieged population of Gaza.

In conclusion, Dar stressed that the meeting should not only demonstrate support for the Palestinians but also catalyze global efforts to ensure their protection and aid.

The deputy prime minister called for concerted and immediate international measures to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian people and to work towards the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state.
