PM Imran reassures Palestinian President Pakistan’s full support
Prime Minister Imran Khan Thursday reaffirmed Pakistan’s steadfast support for the rights of Palestinian people and their legitimate struggle.
The prime minister held a telephonic conversation with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to discuss the ongoing situation in Palestine. The prime minister reassured president Abbas of Pakistan’s efforts in mobilizing the international community against flagrant violations of human rights and international law.
He re-affirmed Pakistani leadership’s complete support during this time of crisis, the PM Office media wing said in a press release. President Abbas welcomed Pakistan’s support and appreciated Pakistani leadership’s response and its statements condemning Israel’s attacks in Gaza and Al-Aqsa Mosque.
He briefed prime minister Khan on the most recent developments and exchanged views on future actions.
The prime minister strongly condemned the attacks on innocent worshippers in Al-Aqsa Mosque and lethal airstrikes by Israel in Gaza, resulting in the death of so many civilians, including children. The two leaders agreed to continue to closely engage in the ongoing situation.
A day earlier, the prime minister on his Twitter handle extended full support to Palestine, its leadership and Palestinian people.
