KARACHI: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the country is facing great pressure from the United States to recognise Israel, especially in the wake of peace deals between several Arab states and Tel Aviv, but this will not be possible “unless there is a just settlement, which satisfies Palestine”.

The prime minister was quoted as making these remarks by the Middle East Eye (MEE) website — a portal with a focus on the region — in a report carried on Monday.

MEE said Mr Khan made these remarks “last week” talking to “local media”.

The website quoted the prime minister as saying that pressure to recognise Israel was “extraordinary during the Trump stint”.

Rules out recognition until there is justice for Palestinians

Asked if any Muslim states were applying similar pressure on Pakistan, the PM appeared evasive, saying “there are things we cannot say. We have good relations with them”.

Earlier this year the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan normalised relations with Israel, while reports in the media stated that the Trump administration was goading Saudi Arabia to do the same. Riyadh has so far not followed in the footsteps of its Gulf and Arab allies.

In the MEE report, the PM reiterated Pakistan’s official line on the Palestine question, saying that “Islamabad would continue to follow in Jinnah’s footsteps vis-a-vis Palestine” meaning that unless there was justice for the Arab side, recognition of the Zionist state was off the table for Pakistan. ..

  1. The President of the USA and many in US Government are always under the pressure from some Mafia or the other to do as told by them. For example the War Mafia gets its wars from time to time to drain away into its coffers, tax dollars paid by the hard working people of the USA. The war expenses are usually hard to account for. Similarly the US President and many others also come under pressure from the supposedly Golden Calf worshippers Mafia. Hence the pressure to recognise the “Roman Out post in Asia”. This is the third time that such an Outpost has been created by the invading Europeans on this land, as was the first and second time. The first and second of such Outposts were created 2100 years and then about 1000 years ago. The first and the second Outposts were wiped out by the local Asian people about 1700 and then about 900 years ago. The present Outpost is destined to vanish by looking at the history of this land of peace. Peace has always returned to this land when the local Asian people have been able to throw out the invading Europeans. Why Roman? People prove themselves to be, what they are, by their deeds. People behaving like the Godless Romans who came to this land previously, can not be anything other than what they prove to be by their behaviour. By the way in Europe mythology plays its part is describing some thing with a wrong label. For example the Europeans celebrate the Pagan god Odin’s Nordic festival on 25th December. Instead of calling their festival ODINMAS for some reason unknown they call it CHRISTMAS. What would the holy chosen man of Good Jesus son of holy Maryam will have to do with Paganism? So we can see anything goes in Europe.
    Who will not respect those truly in obedience to Lord God as are the true Jews. The true Jews lay no claim on Palestine nor do they go to live there. They have come out many a times in the USA and demonstrated at being defamed by the fake Jews. True Jews do not buy the concoction sold by Herzl. They see Herzl’s concoction as a war on Judaism. People in Europe were sold similar concoction by someone else about 1000 years ago. It was Papa Urban. His concoction also turned out to be a war on Christianity as everyone witnessed it in reality

  2. I saw the complete interview, He Never mentioned any specific country, I don’t know where did Dawn news get the US pressure from.

  3. Couldn’t stand the pressure of few extremists blocking Islamabad, how would he stand the pressure of the large numbers of ‘true muslims’ on recognizing Israel. That is the issue
