Yemen values Pakistan’s role to end violence in Palestine, ensure peace: Alashabi
Zubair Qureshi Islamabad
Palestine issue serves a grim reminder on the United Nations (UN), the US and other world powers regarding their failure to resolve decades old conflict that has cost lives of thousands of Muslim men, women and children in Palestine.
Today, the whole world is seeking an urgent, peaceful and lasting solution to the Palestine issue calling for an end to Israel’s war crimes and HR violations and this is perhaps the right time they (the world powers) should intervene and bring an end to Palestinians’ ordeal.
These views were expressed during a meeting between Yemen’s Ambassador Motahar Alashabi and Executive Editor of Pakistan Observer Gauhar Zahid Malik who called on the Ambassador on Wednesday to discuss Palestine issue and to appreciate the Yemen government’s efforts aimed at ceasefire.
CEO of OTV, Mr Omer Malik also accompanied Mr Gauhar Malik on this occasion. They condemned the recent, unprovoked and brutal attacks by the Israeli forces in the holy month of Ramazan-ul-Mubarak.
The Israeli forces launched aerial attacks on the innocent Palestinians killing more than 300 people including children and women, they said, and demanded from the international community, the UN, the US and the European Union (EU) to take notice of Israel’s war crimes against Palestinians.
The Yemeni envoy lauded Prime Minister Imran for his prompt response to the Israeli aggression and for taking up the matter at the United Nations (UN), OIC and all the other global forums through the Pakistani overseas missions and the Foreign Office.
He also praised the bold stance of Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi for strongly advocating the Palestine cause at the international level.
It is not simply an issue of the people of Palestine or a territorial dispute, rather it is question of justice and humanity and the world, particularly the international powers, the UN and the OIC should address it at the earliest, said Gauhar Malik.
Pakistan Observer is planning to host an international conference very soon to highlight the plight of the innocent Muslim brothers and sisters of Palestine who have been facing gross violations of human rights (HR) for the last six decades, Gauhar Malik told the ambassador.
The Yemeni Ambassador said Pakistan Observer has always been vocal and making great efforts for unity of the Ummah and resolution of the conflicts.
While paying rich tributes to the late founder Editor-in-Chief of Pakistan Observer, Zahid Malik, Ambassador of Yemen said he was a true friend of the Islamic world and his efforts in this regard would always be remembered.
