Pakistan Foreign Minister displays his presence in Turkey and trying his best to bring the focus of the international community on a very serious issue Israel’s attack on Palestine. On his diplomatic mission, he said that the silence of the international community is condemnable. Moreover, he said to the Muslims of different European countries to play their vibrant role against Israel terrorist attacks.
“The bombardment in Palestine has resulted in a power outage and affected the supplies of essential commodities,” the foreign minister noted”.
He said Israel was “complicating” the matter further and its bombardment of the enclave was preventing the Palestinians from accessing healthcare.
Qureshi said “hurdles were being created” so the Palestinian foreign minister would not be able to attend the UN General Assembly’s session on the situation in Palestine. “We will wait for the Palestinian foreign minister and want him to accompany us to the session,” the report quoted him as saying.
A day earlier, Qureshi left for his visit to Turkey on the special instructions of Prime Minister Imran Khan, a Foreign Office statement said.
At the end of his visit, Qureshi will leave for New York with the foreign ministers of Palestine, Turkey and Sudan.
During his New York visit, the foreign minister will hold “important meetings” with different dignitaries and will “raise a voice [for] oppressed Palestinians in the UNGA”, the statement said.
He will also talk to local and international media representatives and convey Pakistan’s stance on the Palestinian situation to them, the statement added.
Also on Monday, Qureshi used the National Assembly platform to give a call for countrywide peaceful protests on May 21 (Friday) against the ongoing Israeli aggression in Palestine.
The foreign minister said Pakistan and Turkey had decided to move the United Nations against the Zionist atrocities on the Palestinian people.
He said a demand would be made to convene an emergency session of the UN General Assembly where he and his Turkish counterpart would raise their voices for Palestine.
He said Pakistan had a clear position that Israel, which was hell-bent upon oppressing people in Gaza, should not be compared with the Palestinians who were facing barbarism.
A resolution moved by the foreign minister strongly denounced the systematic and brutal disenfranchisement, exclusion and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people.
