MNA PTI Dr Semi Bukhari said Pakistani government has a clear approach towards the issue of Kashmir and Palestine that Pakistan will not compromise on its principled stand on these important issue.

The international community, especially the Western world, has kept criminal silence over atrocities being committed by Israel over Palestinians, she regretted.
