Pakistan government condemns shifting of US embassy to Jerusalem

The Foreign Office (FO) on Monday expressed serious concern on the opening of a US embassy in the occupied Jerusalem that is a violation of international law and several United Nations Security Council resolutions.

The United States officially inaugurated its deeply controversial Jerusalem embassy in a ceremony that included a video address by President Donald Trump yesterday.
Meanwhile, deadly clashes left more than 55 Palestinians dead from Israeli fire and more than 2,400 wounded.
“Pakistan has noted with grave concern that despite calls by the international community to comply with the UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions on the two-state solution, the US is moving its embassy to the holy city of Jerusalem,” the FO said.
“This represents a violation of international law and several United Nations Security Council resolutions, in particular resolutions 476 and 478.
“The government and people of Pakistan stand firmly with the Palestinian people,” said the statement.
