Pakistan gives a strong message to UAE over issue of recognising Israel
MULTAN – Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the Emirati leadership was told that Pakistan will not recognise Israel till the Palestine issue resolved.
Talking to the media in Multan, he mentioned that we heard the United Arab Emirates stance on Israel, and clearly conveyed ours to them as well.
Qureshi who returned from a two-day visit to UAE reiterated that Pakistan would not be dictated by any pressure. “We will not tolerate any demands neither we are under any compulsion to recognize the Jewish state,” he added.
The 64-year-old PTI leader clarified that he presented Pakistan's clear position on both Kashmir and Palestine issues.
“I also discussed all the complications being faced by Pakistanis in Arab states including the current visa issue. The current visa ban is temporary and due to an on-going pandemic, he restated.
