Pak Reaction on Trump plan for recognising Jerusalem as Israel

Pakistan has expressed its concern over proposed move by the Trump administration to shift US embassy to Jerusalem, according to a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office on Wednesday.

The decision would alter the legal and historical status of the city, it added.

Islamabad has already endorsed the recently adopted Final Communique of the OIC on this issue.

While reaffirming solidarity with the Palestinian people, the government of Pakistan has renewed its call for establishment of a viable, independent and contiguous State of Palestine, on the basis of internationally agreed parametres, the pre-1967 borders, and with Jerusalem as its capital.
