Expressing solidarity with the brotherly people of Palestine, Ambassador Najm us Saqib renewed the Government of Pakistan’s call for establishment of a viable, independent and contiguous State of Palestine on the basis of internationally agreed parameters, the pre-1967 borders and with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital. He concluded his remarks by stating that Pakistan would continue extending its political, moral and diplomatic support to the people of Palestine.

Defence Attache Brig. Muhammad Yousaf and First Secretary Azeem Ullah Cheema while saluting the bravery and courage displayed by the people of Palestine, drew the attention of International Community and the United Nations and noted with grave concern that calls by International Community to comply with the UN General Assembly and Security Council Resolutions, in particular, Resolution 476 and 478, are not heeded to in letter and spirit.

President of Pakistan-Brazil Association, Shah Faisal, expressed complete solidarity with the hapless Palestinians while condemning in the strongest terms, the recent killing of innocent Palestinians by the Israeli authorities. The Community also expressed surprise at the muted response of International Community, in particular, the United Nations being unable to fulfil their promises on Palestine.
