Pakistan gives measured response on UAE-Israel deal

Pakistan’s Foreign Office Friday issued a measured response towards USA President Donal Trump-brokered peace deal between Israel and the United Arb Emirates terming ‘it a development with far-reaching implications.”

The Foreign Office said in a statement that Pakistan has noted the Joint Statement announcing agreement of UAE and Israel to have full normalization of relations and this is a development with far-reaching implications.

“Pakistan has an abiding commitment to the full realization of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, including the right to self-determination. Peace and stability in the Middle East region is also Pakistan’s key priority,” it read.

“For a just, comprehensive and lasting peace, Pakistan has consistently supported a two-state solution in accordance with the relevant UN and OIC resolutions as well as international law. Pakistan’s approach will be guided by our evaluation of how Palestinians’ rights and aspirations are upheld and how regional peace, security and stability are preserved.”
