Pakistan unequivocally opposed to USA move

Israeli forces clash with Palestinian protesters near an Israeli checkpoint in the West Bank city of Bethlehem

In line with this announcement, the U.S. is also shifting its embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city, again becoming the first country to take such a step.

The Treasury and opposition benches in the National Assembly joined hands to pass the resolution which termed Trumps decision as a direct attack on Muslims at a time when the Middle East is already beset with wars and conflicts. The United States, an worldwide peacekeeper, is expected to act in a completely different way.

Earlier, the Foreign Office in a statement condemned President Trumps decision.

A statement issued by the Prime Minister Office stated that shifting the U.S. embassy to the "occupied City of Al-Quds Al-Sharif will alter the legal and historical status of the city".

In the message, the King expressed deep concern about the USA decision regarding Al Quds (Jerusalem) and rejected any attempt aiming at violating the status of the holy city.

Pakistan on Wednesday reaffirmed full solidarity with the Palestinian people and expressed concern over the proposed move by the United States to shift its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, saying "such a step would constitute a clear violation of worldwide law and UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions".

He also warned that such a decision would frustrate global efforts aimed at bringing about an atmosphere conducive to a resumption of peace negotiations and would ultimately lead to increased strife and tension and undermine all opportunities for peace, not to mention fuel violence and extremism.

The FO also urged the United Sates to revisit its decision as soon as possible in order to avoid the potentially grave repercussions in the region and beyond.
