New York: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Friday that talking about Israeli policies and repression does not constitute prejudice.
Shah Mahmoud Qureshi said at a press conference in New York that Pakistan will continue to work for sustainable peace in Palestine and promised to fight the Palestinian and Kashmir cases in all forums.
The Foreign Minister insisted that he described the similarities between Palestine and India’s illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) because both countries are fighting for the right to self-determination.
He said that both countries are calling for opposition to ethnic cleansing and are facing terrible barbaric acts to gain their basic rights. He added that the attacks on Palestine since the past eleven days have destroyed Gaza because more than 50,000 Palestinians have left their homes, 230 women and children have been killed, and many others have been injured in the attacks.
Qureshi said that the recent attacks have also caused food supply difficulties in the disaster-stricken areas of Palestine.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Al-Aqsa Mosque is sacred to Muslims, Christians and Jews.
FM Qureshi said that the ceasefire agreement is being implemented by both sides. “The ceasefire is a positive step but it is not enough. We have to move towards a solution,” he said.
