Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday called the President of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas to discuss the ongoing situation in Palestine.
During the phone call, PM Khan reaffirmed Pakistan’s steadfast support for the rights of Palestinian people and their legitimate struggle.
The prime minister reassured president Abbas of Pakistan’s efforts in mobilising the international community against flagrant violations of human rights and international law.
He re-affirmed Pakistani leadership’s complete support during this time of crisis, the PM Office said in a press release.
President Abbas welcomed Pakistan’s support and appreciated the Pakistani leadership’s response and its statements condemning Israel’s attacks in Gaza and Al-Aqsa Mosque.
He briefed prime minister Khan on the most recent developments and exchanged views on future actions.
The prime minister strongly condemned the attacks on innocent worshippers in Al-Aqsa Mosque and lethal air strikes by Israel in Gaza, resulting in the death of 56 civilians, including children.
The two leaders agreed to continue to closely engage in the ongoing situation.
