Karachi: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi strictly told the UAE leadership that Pakistan will not accept Israel until the Palestinian issue is resolved.
Talking to media in Multan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that during his visit to UAE, he talked about the plight of Pakistanis in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Dubai, adding that the issue of UAE visas for Pakistanis is temporary.
The United Arab Emirates or Saudi Arabia do not give India precedence over Pakistan. Soon the UAE leadership will visit Pakistan.
“We talked to the UAE leadership about Pakistan’s role in the Afghan peace process,” Qureshi said.
He also listened to the UAE’s position on Israel and presented a clear position on relations with Israel.
He said that they did not make decisions under any pressure Pakistan will come first while making any kind of decision.
He further mentioned that “we will not tolerate any pressure on Israel and we are not under any pressure. I have made it clear that our position on Palestine and the Kashmir issue is clear to the world. We will not belong to Israel until the Palestinian issue is resolved.”
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that if India commits any irresponsible act, it will get a timely and appropriate response.
