On Monday, while talking to reporters in Multan, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that United Arab Emirates leadership was told that Pakistan will not recognise Israel till Palestinian issue is resolved.
“Pakistan in any situation cannot establish relations with Israel until a concrete and permanent solution is found to the problem of Palestine,” said Qureshi.
The foreign minister said that during his meeting with the UAE counterpart, he explained how Pakistani nation feels about the issues of Palestine and Kashmir. The foreign minister, who returned from a two-day visit to UAE on Saturday, said, “we heard the UAE rulers’ stance on Israel, and clearly conveyed ours to them as well”.
He further said that Pakistan’s decision will not be influenced by any other country. “Neither will we tolerate any pressure regarding Israel, nor we are under any compulsion,”
