Pakistani PM Imran Khan reveals when Islamabad will recognise Israel

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has brushed aside speculation about a diplomatic shift towards Israel, including recognition of the Jewish state, the Middle East Eye reports. Asked about the rumours, which were sparked following recent debates in the Pakistani media, at the Asian Society in New York, which Khan flew to for the United Nations General Assembly, the Pakistani PM reassured the audience that Islamabad’s position on the issue has not changed since the foundation of Pakistan, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

"Pakistan has a very straightforward position. It was our founder of Pakistan Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah who was very clear that there has to be just settlement, a homeland for Palestinians before Pakistan can recognise Israel", Khan said, as cited by the web-outlet.
