*JEDDAH: Pakistan lashes out at Israel calling it's move 'dangerous' over Palestinian land aannexation plan. *
Pakistan has termed Israel’s planned move to annex territories in the occupied West Bank as a “dangerous trend” and a “threat to international peace and security”.
Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood led the Pakistani delegation at the 16th extraordinary meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Council of Foreign Ministers held in Jeddah on Sunday.
According to an official statement, the OIC called the meeting at Saudi Arabia’s request after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised to annex the Jordan Valley if re-elected.
All Israeli settlements are viewed as illegal under international law.
The education minister said Tel Aviv’s move would only inflame tensions in the region.
He appealed to the OIC members, United Nations and the international community to revive their obligation towards the people of Palestine.
