UNSC urged to stop Israel from Human Rights Violations

NEW YORK: Pakistan Wednesday called on the Security Council to act “swiftly and resolutely” to bring a halt to a host of Israel’s human rights violation in the occupied Palestinian territory and continuous provocations at the sacred Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, and ensure its compliance with International aw, and implement the resolutions on the Middle East conflict.
Speaking in the 15-member Council’s debate on the situation in the Middle East, Ambassador Munir Akram said that the two-State formula, envisaging establishment of an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel, offers the only solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
“The rising extremism in Israeli leadership must not be allowed to foreclose this solution,” the Pakistani envoy said, referring to the new Israeli extreme right-wing government led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. –Agencies
