PPP for OIC summit on Palestine

ISLAMABAD, Dec. 15 (NNI): Senator Mian Raza Rabbani, Additional Secretary General, of the PPP Monday urged the Government to immediately ask for a meeting of the OIC in order to mobilize the Muslim countries for the creation and recognition of the State of Palestine.

“This is an ideal opportunity, particularly, when European countries have started such an initiative and various European Parliaments have endorsed the same,” he said in a statement.

He said that efforts are being made to have UN Resolution passed in this regard and it will be appropriate if Pakistan takes a lead in this regard.

“Pakistan Peoples Party and the people of Palestine more particularly the Fatah have had a long historic relationship from the days of Chairman Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Chairman Yasir Arafat. The people of Pakistan have always stood by the people of Palestine,” he said. NNI
