ISLAMABAD   -   Pakistan yesterday categorically rejected the notion of any delegation from Pakistan visiting Israel. Responding to queries, Foreign Office spokesperson Asim Iftikhar Ahmed said that the reported visit in question was organized by a foreign NGO which was not based in Pakistan. “Pakistan’s position on the Palestinian issue is clear and unambiguous. 

There is no change whatsoever in our policy on which there is complete national consensus,” he added. He says that Pakistan steadfastly sup­ports the Palestinian people’s inalienable right to self-determination. “The establishment of an independent, viable and contiguous Palestinian State with pre-1967 borders and Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital, in accordance with the rel­evant UN and OIC resolutions, is imperative for just and lasting peace in the region,” he said.
