Pakistan and Turkey to launch joint action plan against Israel
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan and Turkey have strongly condemned the Israeli aggression against unarmed Palestinians and their forced eviction from their homes.
This came at a meeting between Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu in Ankara today (Tuesday).
The two foreign ministers also decided to jointly raise voice against the Israeli persecution of Palestinians.
"We will not leave alone our Palestinian brothers," FM Qureshi said. He said the entire Muslim community is in a state of pain due to the Israeli bombardment and the violence against Palestinians during Ramazanul Mubarak and Eidul Fitr.
The minister said on the direction of Prime Minister Imran Khan, adding, "We are observing a day of solidarity with our Palestinian brothers on Friday."
The Turkish foreign minister appreciated FM Qureshi's address at the OIC's Executive Committee at the level of Foreign Ministers and Pakistan's continuous and robust support to the oppressed Palestinians.
The Turkish foreign minister hosted a luncheon in the honour of Shah Mehmood Qureshi.
