Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan would continue efforts for sustainable peace in Palestine.

NEW YORK (Dunya News) - Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Friday said that talking about Israeli policy and repression is not prejudice, Dunya News reported.

Addressing a press conference in New York, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan would continue efforts for sustainable peace in Palestine pledging to fight the cases of Palestine and Kashmir on all fora.

The foreign minister maintained that he had described the similarities between Palestine and Indian Illegal Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), as both nations were fighting for the right to self-determination.

Both the nations were raising voice against ethnic-cleansing and facing horrendous brutalities to get their basic rights, he said, adding that attacks on Palestine from last eleven days had destroyed Gaza as more than 50,000 Palestinians left their homes, 230 women and kids martyred and many others injured in the attacks.

Qureshi said that the recent attacks also resulted into difficulties in food supply in affected areas of Palestine.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Al-Aqsa Mosque is sacred to Muslims, Christians and Jews.

FM Qureshi said that the ceasefire agreement is being implemented by both sides. “The ceasefire is a positive step but it is not enough. We have to move towards a solution,” he said.
