Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has urged the United States to immediately rescind its decision to recognize Jerusalem as the so-called capital of Israel.
Addressing the Extraordinary OIC Summit on Al-Quds Al-Sharif on Wednesday, he asked the United States to fully comply with all applicable United Nations Security Council resolutions and recommit unequivocally to the two-state solution.
“It is a blatant attempt to set in motion, steps to change the historic and lawful status of the Holy City.”
The prime minister on the behalf of the people and government of Pakistan reiterated strong condemnation of the US decision. “The US took the dangerous step due to weaknesses of the Muslim Ummah. The unity of the Muslims is the requirement of unusual time. Pakistan wants the establishment of an independent state of Palestine.”
