KARACHI: A day after President Donald Trump recognised the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Pakistan has decided to launch an international diplomatic campaign against the US decision, the Pakistan based Express Tribune newspaper reported.
The issue will also be raised on all international forums, including the United Nations, the newspaper reported.
Quoting sources, the report stated that the government in Islamabad would convince the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) to announce a joint and coordinated strategy in its forthcoming meeting in Turkey against the US ‘controversial’ decision and increase pressure on Trump to withdraw his decision.
Besides, the report claimed that the Pakistan will extend its full support to the OIC in case of a decision of Muslim Ummah limiting or suspending diplomatic or trade relations with the United States.
The Foreign Office has already started contacting important countries – including China, Russia, Britain and France – and briefed them about the serious reservations and apprehensions of the Muslim world on the issue, it added.
The report stated that the Pakistan wants a coordinated strategy in the upcoming meeting of the UN Security Council. The UN should increase pressure on the Trump administration to withdraw the decision immediately.
