The Foreign Office (FO) on Tuesday rubbished Israel’s remarks against Pakistan during a United Nations (UN) session, describing it as ‘politically motivated’ and ‘fundamentally at variance with the positive tone’ of the meeting.
The UN Human Rights Council today adopted Pakistan’s Universal Periodic Report unanimously,” the FO said in response to Israel calling on Pakistan to respect human rights.
It added: “Several states and civil society organizations commended Pakistan on the progress achieved in promoting human rights.
“Israel’s politically motivated statement is fundamentally at variance with the otherwise positive tone of the session and the statements made by a vast majority of states,”
“Given Israel’s long history of oppression of Palestinians, Pakistan can certainly do without its advice on protecting human rights.”
