Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has praised the recent decision of the government of Ireland to recognize the state of Palestine, saying that this decision will send a message of hope and solidarity to the innocent Palestinians.

According to the statement issued by the media wing of the Prime Minister’s Office, there was a telephone conversation between Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and the Prime Minister of the Republic of Ireland, Simon Harris.

The Prime Minister congratulated the Prime Minister of Ireland on his assumption of office and wished him well.
The Prime Minister hoped that he would play an important role in the development and prosperity of his country and people.

He hoped that Ireland’s decision would put pressure on other countries to take similar decisions.

The Prime Minister further said that Pakistan has always advocated that the two-state solution as per the relevant UN resolutions is the only way to bring lasting peace in the Middle East.

The premier also expressed the hope that the oppressed people of Kashmir will also receive similar attention from the international community as they too have been enduring brutal occupation and denial of basic human rights for the past seven decades.

The two leaders discussed bilateral relations between Pakistan and Ireland and expressed their common desire to strengthen cooperation in areas of mutual interest and also invited Prime Minister Simon Harris to pay an official visit to Pakistan.
