Pakistan slams Israel's unabated settlement activity in Occupied Palestinian territory
Pakistan has slammed Israel's unabated settlement activity in Occupied Palestinian territory and termed it as a setback to peace.
Speaking at a debate on the Middle East situation in the UN Security Council, Pakistani delegate Saad Ahmad Warraich said the expanded illegal Israeli settlements are a blatant disregard for international law and will of global community which are worsening the situation.
Underscoring the need for a settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he said a viable and independent State of Palestine based on internationally agreed parameters is the only path to sustainable peace in the Middle East.
Saad Ahmad said the suffering of civilians in Gaza represents a moral outrage and must end.
