Resolution on Palestine by UNHRC diplomatic success of Pakistan: Mazari

Resolution on Palestine by UNHRC diplomatic success of Pakistan: Mazari
May 28, 2021

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari has termed that the adoption of resolution on Palestine by UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is a major diplomatic success of Pakistan on Friday.

Addressing a news conference along with Information Minister Fawad Chaudhary, the minister said this resolution was initiated by Pakistan and supported by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). He also said this is a very important resolution as it received support from across all the regions.

Shireen Mazari said it calls for establishment of an international independent investigation commission to probe into Israel's human rights violations against Palestinians. She said Israel is committing war crimes against Palestinians and the attack on Al-Aqsa mosque was not just an attack on Palestinians but the faith of Islam.

The minister said that some countries which claim to be flag bearers of human rights either opposed or abstained from voting on the resolution.

She pointed out that India abstained from voting on the resolution as it is committing the same blatant human rights violations in illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir which Israel is perpetrating on the Palestinian territory.

Shireen Mazari said the UN Human Rights Council's resolution has set a good precedence and a similar resolution can also be moved on Kashmir dispute with the support of the OIC.

She was confident that now the voice of oppressed people of Palestine and Kashmir will echo in the whole world.

In his remarks, Fawad Chaudhary said the leadership role played by PM Imran Khan on the issue of Palestine is before the people of Pakistan and the entire Muslim Ummah.
