PPP leaders express solidarity with Palestinians

ISLAMABAD – On the instruction of Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the PPP Secretary General Syed Nay­yar Hussain Bukhari and former prime minister Raja Pervez Ashraf visited the Palestinian Embassy in Islamabad to express solidari­ty with Palestinians against Israe­li barbarism. 

Nayyar Bukhari and Raja Pervez Ashraf in a meeting with the Pales­tinian Ambassador assured PPP’s full support and solidarity with the Palestinian people.

They said the PPP and the Paki­stani people stood with Palestini­ans in this hour of need. The inter­national community should take steps to stop Israeli barbarism and violence against unarmed Palestinians. International hu­man rights organisations should increase pressure to stop Israeli atrocities. 

Nayyar Bukhari said that the in­ternational community’s silence on the ongoing atrocities was wor­rying. Violence against Palestin­ians should be stopped immedi­ately, Nayyar Bukhari said, adding that the PPP leadership had al­ways condemned Israel for its ille­gal occupation of Palestinian land.

Nayyar Bukhari said that Sha­heed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto raised the issue of Palestine in the Unit­ed Nations for the first time. For­mer prime minister Shaheed Be­nazir Bhutto and President Asif Ali Zardari also expressed their sup­port for the solution of the Pales­tinian issue. Nayyar Bukhari said the PPP would raise the issue of Palestine at every internation­al forum under the leadership of Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Former prime minister Raja Per­vez Ashraf said that the PPP stood shoulder to shoulder with the peo­ple of Palestine and would contin­ue to highlight the issue of Pales­tine through diplomatic means. The PPP, he said, would also raise the issue of ongoing Israeli atroci­ties in Palestine in the Parliament.
