In a bid to pacify India, Palestine recalls Pak ambassador; heres why
In a major development, Palestine has recalled its ambassador to Pakistan who had shared the stage with 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed.
It need be mentioned that India has been miffed after the photo went viral in media and an angry India told Palestinian authorities that its ambassador’s association with the designated terrorist was “unacceptable”.
The ambassador’s recall came hours after the Palestine conveyed its “deep regrets” for the envoy’s decision and assured India that they are taking serious cognizance of their Ambassador’s presence at this event.
The decision to recall Palestinian ambassador to Pakistan, Walid Abu Ali, came soon after.
It need be mentioned that Walid Abu Ali had made a public appearance at a rally called by Hafiz Saeed, also a key leader of Difa-e-Pakistan Council, a coalition of more than 40 political and religious parties.
Friday’s meeting was aimed at pressing Pakistan government to convene an Islamic Summit Conference against the transfer of Israeli capital to Jerusalem.
The envoy’s presence at Hafiz Saeed’s rally came just days after India, in sync with Palestinian sentiments, voted in the United Nations General Assembly to oppose the recent decision of US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
