Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi reiterated the country’s support to Palestinian people in the face of tyranny. Abassi said that member states of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) should enlist other countries’ support to put an end to killings of Palestinians and help establish an independent and contiguous state of Palestine on the basis of internationally agreed parameters and with Al Quds as its capital, Dawn reported
In a statement at the seventh extraordinary summit of the OIC on Friday night, which was held to discuss the recent killings of over 100 Palestinians in Gaza, Mr Abbasi said: “It is no longer a question of choice but of necessity — to rise above our differences, demonstrate solidarity and support for the people of Palestine and above all ensure that international law is upheld without exception.”
He said the OIC member countries should demand that the UN Security Council fulfil its responsibility of ensuring implementation of its existing resolutions. They should make it clear that the council’s credibility would be questioned if it did not deliver on its duties.
