ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Saturday reiterated its principled position on Palestine and its abiding commitment to the full realisation of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, including the right to self-determination. As another Arab State, Bahrain, announced a "peace deal" with Israel for normalisation of ties after the United Arab Eremites (UAE), Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry said: "There's no change in Pakistan's position on Palestine and the Middle East Peace Process".

Responding to media queries, the spokesperson said that peace and stability in the Middle East region remained Pakistan's key priority.

"We have an abiding commitment to the full realization of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, including the right to self-determination," he stated.

For a just, comprehensive and lasting peace, he added that Pakistan had consistently supported a two-state solution in accordance with the relevant United Nations and OIC resolutions as well as international law, with pre-1967 borders and Al-Quds Al-Sharif as the capital of Palestine.

As for the recent developments, the spokesperson stated that Pakistan's approach would be guided by our evaluation of how Palestinians' rights and aspirations were upheld and how regional peace, security and stability were preserved.

Earlier on Friday, US President Donald Trump announced a "peace deal" between Bahrain and Israel.

"The second Arab country to make peace with Israel in 30 days," Trump tweeted.

The Palestinian Authority condemned the Bahrain-Israel "peace deal" as another betrayal by an Arab state, while Hamas described this as an "aggression" on the Palestinian cause.

Other regional countries, including Turkey and Iran also condemned the Bahrain-Israel "peace deal".
