Prime Minister Imran Khan has categorically rejected any possibility that Pakistan can establish relations with Israel after it signed a historic affect the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to normalise bilateral ties.
“Our stance is extremely clear from day one and Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had said Pakistan can never accept state of Israel until the people of Palestine get rights and state,” he said in an interview with a personal news channel on Tuesday.
The prime minister said accepting the state of Israel is like hand over Pakistan’s stance on Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). “The case of Palestinians is analogous to people of Kashmir and their [Palestinians] rights are snatched and that they are suffering Israeli atrocities.”
Last week, Israel and therefore the UAE had reached a historic deal that might cause a full normalisation of diplomatic relations between the 2 Middle Eastern nations in an agreement that US President Donald Trump helped broker.
Under the agreement, Israel has agreed to suspend applying sovereignty to areas of the West Bank that it’s been discussing annexing, senior White House officials told Reuters.
The PM put aside the reports that Islamabad relations with Riyadh have deteriorated recently saying “Saudi Arabia is Pakistan’s key ally”.
He said every country makes decision consistent with its own policy and national interest. “Our role is to unite the whole Muslim world which may be a very challenging task and that we will do our greatest .”
