Pakistani Senate adopts resolution against Trump

The Upper House of the Pakistani Parliament, the Senate - has unanimously adopted a resolution against a US-devised proposal on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying the scheme seeks the Palestinian people’s “humiliating surrender” before their oppressors.

The 104-seat legislature approved Monday the resolution, which had been tabled by Senator Mushtaq Ahmad Khan from Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan party.

The document underlined the need for “a just, fair and peaceful solution” to the issue of Palestine based on UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions, which call for “the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian State, safe return of all Palestinians to their homes.

Islamabad, it added, should also summon a special UN General Assembly session to hear the Palestinians and other stakeholders, and explore options for a peaceful resolution of the conflict.

Pakistan’s Senate further expressed dismay at Tel Aviv’s continued occupation of Palestinian territories, detention of hundreds of Palestinians in Israeli jails, and the relentless oppression of Palestinian people by the regime forces.

The scheme that US President Donald Trump calls “deal of the century” is “tantamount to an instrument of humiliating surrender for the Palestinians before the oppressor and the aggressor,” it noted, according to press tv.
