Islamabad, May 18 (KMS): Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said the PTI-led government would never step back from the country’s stance on Palestine and Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly, he said he would leave for Turkey and meet his Turkish, Palestinian, and Sudanese counterparts there.

The National Assembly on Monday unanimously passed a resolution expressing deep concern over the increasing violence and brutality perpetrated against the Palestinian people by the Israeli apartheid regime.

He said Pakistan, Turkey, Sudan, and Palestine’s foreign ministers would visit New York and raise their voices against Israel’s aggression in the Gaza Strip at the UN General Assembly.

“I will represent the voices of 22 million Pakistanis in New York,” he said.

Permanent Observer Mission of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation to the United Nations will contact the president of UNGA and ask him to summon a session on the issue immediately, he said. — Courtesy Geo TV
