Pakistan has expressed its concern over proposed move by the Trump administration to shift U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, according to a statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office on Wednesday.
"Algeria has noted with very great concern the American administration's decision to recognize Al Quds as the capital of Israel", said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a communiqué. It is a serious setback to the rule of law and worldwide norms. It can even annihilate permanently the chances of achieving peace in the region, says the Ministry, which warns against the fact that Israel can use this decision to continue with its systematic policy in the holy city erasing its religious and spiritual features. "It signals a severe blow to the Middle East peace process as well", the statement read.
The Government of Pakistan welcomes the announcement by Turkey to convene an extraordinary Islamic Summit next week to discuss this serious issue.
On Monday, the OIC had said that its 57 member states should sever ties with any state that transfers its embassy to Jerusalem or recognises Israel's annexation of East Jerusalem.
Pakistan on Wednesday reaffirmed full solidarity with the Palestinian people and expressed concern over the proposed move by the United States to shift its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, saying "such a step would constitute a clear violation of worldwide law and UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions".
Islamabad has already endorsed the recently adopted Final Communique of the OIC on this issue.
Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif also took to twitter to condemn the United States move.
He warned that any violation of the recognized legal and historical status of the holy city, important to Jews, Muslims and Christians is likely to exacerbate religious and sectarian conflicts, while undermining global efforts to create conditions conducive to the resumption of peace talks and jeopardize the chances for peace.saya bangga dikarenakan kunjungan Anda di blog ini dan membaca tulisan Pakistan Unequivocally Opposed To United States Move.
