Interim Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani emphasized that Pakistan’s stance on establishing relations with Israel would be determined by carefully considering both Pakistan’s national interests and the concerns of the Palestinian people.
This statement was issued in response to comments made by Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen regarding the normalization of Israel’s relations with Muslim-majority nations.
According to reports from Israeli media outlet Kan News, Cohen suggested that “six or seven” Islamic countries might be considering normalizing diplomatic ties with Israel, potentially expanding the Abraham Accords. This agreement has already seen the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco, and Sudan establish relations with Israel.
Furthermore, the Israeli minister claimed to have engaged in discussions with leaders from various Muslim-majority nations that have not yet recognized Israel.
