ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Friday has said that every individual of Pakistan is with Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan in expressing solidarity with the innocent people of Palestine.

In a post on social-networking website Twitter, the minister pledged to stand with Palestinians in this difficult time. Ceasefire is a success, he added.

Fawad Chaudhry further assured to support the Muslims of Palestine till they get justice and due rights.

Earlier, Fawad Chaudhry said Pakistan was the first country that took a strong, clear and unflinching stance on Palestine. He pointed out that parameters of Pakistan’s policy on Palestine had been set by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, adding “today PM Imran Khan is the custodian of that policy.”

Fawad Chaudhry said Pakistan would send coronavirus (COVID-19) and medical emergency relief assistance to Palestine on humanitarian grounds to mitigate sufferings of innocent people there.

The decision to this effect was taken in the Federal Cabinet meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan, he said while briefing the media persons. 

He said the Cabinet thoroughly discussed the prevailing situation in Palestine and expressed deep concern and resentment over the plight of Palestinians.

He said Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had gone to Turkey where he held meeting with his Turkish counterpart.

He said foreign ministers of different Islamic countries including Pakistan, Turkey, Sudan and Palestine would leave for New York in a group-form to attend the special session of United Nations General Assembly on Palestine.
