NEW YORK, (PIC) +
Pakistan says Israel’s latest law, defining the country as Jewish nation-state is a vivid manifestation of Tel Aviv’s consistent policy of discrimination against Palestinians.
In an open debate on Middle East situation at the UN Security Council, Pakistan’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Maleeha Lodhi, said such racist laws should have no place in today’s world.
She said the discriminatory Israeli law relegates indigenous Arab population to second class citizen status.
Maleeha Lodhi said we reject any attempts to diminish legal standing of Palestinians or to deprive them of their legitimate rights within their homeland.
She called for boosting efforts to promote a just solution to the Middle East conflict.
Maleeha Lodhi said the controversial Israeli bill states that only Jews have the right of self-determination in Israel.
