Pakistan Foreign Office breaks silence over Media reports of recognition of Israel
ISLAMABAD - Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri has said that recognition of Israel is not under consideration.
Addressing weekly news briefing in Islamabad today, he reiterated that there is no change in Pakistan`s principled position on the issue.
He said the Prime Minister has made it clear that unless a just settlement of the Palestine issue, satisfactory to the Palestinian people, is found, Pakistan cannot recognize Israel.
Referring to the dossier Pakistan has recently presented on India's sponsorship of terrorism, the spokesperson called upon the UN counter-terrorism bodies to proceed on the basis of evidence provided by Pakistan and urge India to renounce use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy.
He said the world bodies should also urge India to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism it has established to inflict terrorism on Pakistan, and stop the use of other countries' soil for its terrorist activities directed against Pakistan.
