Pakistan categorically rejects speculation regarding possibility of recognition of Israel

Islamabad, November 24, 2020 (PPI-OT): Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri has categorically rejected baseless speculation regarding possibility of recognition of the State of Israel by Pakistan. Responding to media queries, the Spokesperson underlined that the Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statements in this context have been clear and unequivocal.

He said the Prime Minister has made it clear that unless a just settlement of the Palestine issue, satisfactory to the Palestinian people, is found, Pakistan cannot recognize Israel. Pakistan steadfastly supports the Palestinian people’s inalienable right to self-determination. For just and lasting peace, it is imperative to have a two-state solution in accordance with the relevant United Nations and OIC resolutions, with the pre-1967 borders, and Al-Quds Al-Sharif as the capital of a viable, independent and contiguous Palestinian State.
