The National Assembly on Thursday unanimously and strongly condemned the US decision to recognise Jerusalem as the so-called capital of Israel and to move its embassy there and demanded the US to immediately take back it decision.

The House adopted the resolution unanimously, moved by Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Chauhdary Barjees Tahir on behalf of political parties.

“This is a direct attack on the Muslim Ummah at a time when the Middle East is already beset with wars and conflicts,” the resolution said.

“The US move is also a violation of international law, UN Security Council resolutions, namely resolutions 252 (1968), 267 (1969), 476 and 478 (1980), including the recent resolution 2334 (2016) and global consensus on how to resolve the Palestine conflict”.

The National Assembly endorsed the final communiqué of the OIC in Jaddah December 4, 2017 and called on the government to immediately mobilise the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) into taking concrete diplomatic steps against US action.
