Pakistan appreciates truce between Israel and Palestine


Islamabad, 24 November 2023 (TDI): The Spokesperson Foreign Ministry of Pakistan on Thursday said that Pakistan believes a durable and sustained ceasefire is critical for bringing much-needed relief to the people of Palestine. 

The remarks came during the weekly press briefing of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan. The spokesperson, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, added that Pakistan impatiently awaits the truce that is expected to come into effect. 

Mumtaz Zahra Baloch while briefing said that the truce in Gaza will present an opportunity to establish a humanitarian corridor facilitating the delivery of food, water, fuel, and other humanitarian aid to the besieged people of Gaza. 

She continued, “We believe that a durable and sustained ceasefire is critical for bringing the much-needed relief to the Palestinian people.”  

She expressed that this would allow to respond to the immense humanitarian needs in Gaza that include extensive and robust humanitarian supplies, urgent medical aid to the injured people. 

Additionally, it would help in providing shelter to those who have been displaced as the result of indiscriminate and inhumane bombing campaign by Israeli Occupation Forces. 

This was in response to a deal between the Israeli Government and Hamas which would pave the way for a humanitarian pause in the ongoing war in Gaza in exchange for hostages being released by Hamas.

She said that we believe that peace in the region can only be achieved with the implementation of the relevant resolutions of the United Nations resolutions calling for a two-state solution. 

The spokesperson once again reiterated Pakistan’s position on the issue, culminating in a viable, sovereign, and geographically contiguous Palestinian state within the pre-1967 borders with Al Quds Sharif as its capital.
