Pakistan Slams Israel’s ‘Unabated’ Settlement Activity as Setback to Peace

UNITED NATIONS – Pakistan has told the UN Security Council that Israel’s “unabated” building of settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory was a setback to peace in the Middle East, while underscoring the need for a settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, APP reported Thursday.
Speaking in a debate on the Middle East situation, Pakistani delegate Saad Ahmad Warraich echoed Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ call for a “surge in diplomacy” in 2019 to meet the expectations of people around the world with UN and said nowhere was such a move more urgent than in the Middle East especially in Palestine.
