Pakistan sees the unresolved Palestine issue at par with the Kashmir issue, Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa said Tuesday.
He made the remarks during his meeting with the Palestine envoy and assured Pakistan’s moral and political support to his country, days after President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Palestine ambassador Walid A M Abu Ali called on Gen Bajwa at GHQ in Rawalpindi, the army’s media wing ISPR said in a statement.
Gen Bajwa “reassured the ambassador that Pakistan views the unresolved Palestine issue at par with the Kashmir issue,” the statement said.
He also said that “both issues have unequivocal public, moral and political support of the Pakistani nation.”
“We will continue to support the principled stance on both regardless of the so-called reality of occupation,” Gen Qamar was cited by the military’s media wing as saying.
