PM Raja Ashraf condemns Israeli air strikes

17 November, 2012

ISLAMABAD: Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi telephoned Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf on Friday to discuss the situation in Gaza arising out of aerial bombardments by Israeli warplanes, which have led to deaths of several Palestinians.

Morsi requested the prime minister for Pakistan's support when the Palestine issue is raised at international forums, especially the United Nations Security Council.

Raja said that Pakistan strongly condemns Israeli air attacks in Gaza that have targeted not only the Hamas leadership but also innocent civilians. He said Pakistan considers Israeli action as a grave violation of international law and all humanitarian norms. He added that Israeli threats of a ground offensive against Gaza were even more disturbing.

Prime Minister Raja said that unless the Palestinian problem was resolved, peace in the Middle East would remain elusive. He expressed concern that the escalation in violence could lead to a spreading of conflict, which may engulf the region.

Raja recalled that Pakistan was among the sponsors of the first resolution on Palestine issue adopted by the UN Security Council. He assured that the people of Pakistan will stand with the people of Palestine at this difficult time as they have always done in the past.
