The Embassy of the State of Palestine in Islamabad has issued a press release thanking Prime Minister Imran Khan for his support during the speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
The press release states, “Palestinian people and the Government of the State of Palestine, the Embassy of the State of Palestine, Islamabad, Pakistan extends sincere thanks to Government and people of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan for their continuous support to Palestine cause, and especially to H. E. Mr. ImranKhan, Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on his recent address to UN General Assembly,”
Furthermore, the press release quotes Prime Minister Imran Khan from his speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UGNA) as saying. “Palestine remains a ‘festering wound’. A just and lasting settlement is indispensable, for the Middle East and the World. Illegal annexations of Palestinian territory, the building of illegal settlements and the imposition of inhuman living conditions on the Palestinian people especially in Gaza cannot bring peace to a troubled region. Pakistan continues to support a two-state solution — in line with UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions, within the internationally agreed parameters, pre-1967 borders, and Al Quds Al Sharif as the capital of a united, contiguous and independent Palestinian State”.
The press release continued, “The Embassy thanks His Excellency the Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan for such a strong rhetoric on highest forum of United Nations and also appreciates every individual of Pakistan, including Political Parties, Media, civil society, who is observing solidarity with Palestine in any possible way, which makes us proud and we are hopeful that this support will be with us until we get, as Prime Minister rightly said, an Independent State of Palestine with Jerusalem Al-Quds as its capital, Long Live Pakistan, Long Live Palestine.”
