Pakistan ‘deeply diappointed’ by UN security council failure to admit Palestine full member at UN 

 

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Friday said Islamabad is deeply disappointed at the result of the last night’s debate at the United Nation Security Council and its inability to reach consensus and recommend Palestine’s membership of the UN to the General Assembly. 

 

 

“We regret the U.S. decision to veto the draft resolution granting full membership of the UN to Palestine,” said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mumtaz Zehra Baloch.

 

 

“We believe the time has come for admission of Palestine to the United Nations. This will be a step towards correcting the historic injustice suffered by the Palestinian people for over 75 years. It will affirm their right to self-determination. The people of Palestine have an inherent right to live in a sovereign, independent and contiguous Palestinian State within the 4 June 1967 borders and with Al-Quds Al-Shareef as its capital,” she added.

 

Pakistan reaction came just after the US vetoes UN Security Council draft resolution that demanding Palestine's full membership at the UN.

 

The membership was blocked with a vote of 12 in favor and two abstentions, including the UK and Switzerland.

 

Islamabad also expressed deep dismay over the Indian authorities’ decision to prohibit observances of key religious events, including Jumma-tul-Wida, Shab-e-Qadr, and Eid-ul-Fitr prayers, at Srinagar’s Jamia Masjid. 

 

“This was the fifth consecutive year when Eid-ul-Fitr prayers were not allowed to take place at this historic mosque. Imposing curbs on the religious leaders and preventing Kashmiris from congregating on special religious occasions pose serious challenges to the religious freedom of Muslims in IIOJK. The Kashmiri people’s rights to freely practice their religion and of peaceful assembly must be respected,” Bloch told reporters.

 

She added that Pakistan will continue to extend political, diplomatic and moral support to our Kashmiri brothers and sisters for the just and peaceful settlement of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN Security Council Resolutions.
