ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday expressed its disappointment with the international community for having failed the just cause of Palestine for another year.
According to a press release by Foreign Office, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in his statement on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People said that he noted this failure very clearly in his recent address at the Annual General Meeting of the United Nations.
He added that the international community had adopted a transformational development agenda for the next fifteen years.
“This agenda talks about people being at the centre. Yet the Palestinian people continue to suffer humiliating and absolutely inhuman treatment at the hands of the occupying power”, PM said.
“But there is also a glimmer of hope. President Mahmoud Abbas hoisted the proud Palestinian flag among the flags of sovereign states at the United Nations on 30th of September this year. This was, indeed, a great milestone in Palestine’s quest for full membership of the United Nations”, he added.
The prime minister also said that he reassured the Palestinians that the Pakistani nation will continue to support them unwaveringly in their struggle for the right to self-determination.
“This is an inalienable right of the Palestinian people that cannot be denied any longer”, he added.
