Spokesman for Pakistan’s Foreign Office Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri on Tuesday dispelled the impression that Pakistan could recognise Israel

Responding to media queries, the Foreign Office spokesperson said that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statements in this regard had been clear and unequivocal. He said the prime minister had made it clear that Pakistan would not recognise Israel until and unless the world finds a solution to the Palestine-Israel conflict that is acceptable to Palestinian people. 

The spokesperson said, “Pakistan steadfastly supports 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.”
