He described the current situation in Gaza as Palestinians living in “open prisons”.
In this context, the Prime Minister called for the full withdrawal of Israeli troops from the occupied Palestinian territories, including Jerusalem; Restoring the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people, including their right to self-determination and the right to return to Palestine, and the creation of an independent, appropriate and neighboring Palestinian state as part of a two-state decision with pre-1967 borders with al -Quds Al-Sharif.
The Prime Minister also emphasized the importance of solidarity between Muslims and the adoption of a collective approach, in particular through the OIC platform, to protect the rights of Muslims, especially those living under foreign occupation.
President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi asked Prime Minister Imran Khan to visit Egypt and President Sisi was called again by Prime Minister Imran Khan for a visit to Pakistan.
