Here is the text of the interview:
There is a similarity between what is happening in Palestine and what is happening in Kashmir. Israel is relocating settlers to the occupied territories, just as India allows non-Kashmiris to settle in Kashmir, and there is an agreement in violence and injustice and a strong rapprochement between the Modi government and the previous Netanyahu government and the current one. Bennett. Will your new government continue to follow in the footsteps of the previous government, and remain committed to supporting the Palestinian and Kashmiri peoples?
There is consensus in Pakistan on the political spectrum when it comes to the Kashmiri and Palestinian peoples. There is a consensus in Pakistan to support the people of Kashmir, and a similar consensus to support the people of Palestine. There is a similarity between the two cases, you have referred to some of them in your question, and many see this similarity in both cases. I raised the issue of the Occupied Territories in my speech to the Security Council as I referred to India’s occupation of Jammu and Kashmir and Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories, and the suffering of the two peoples due to prolonged occupation and endless conflict , which sometimes leads to cases of famine. We believe that we must continue to highlight the suffering of the two peoples of Kashmir and Palestine. We are still witnessing such suffering in Palestine, such as the assassination of journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh, who wore indicating that she is a journalist, and yet she was shot in the neck, and they were not satisfied with that, but they attacked her funeral in a way that shocked the international community, where he saw violent images of Rare to see in modern times. The same suffering that the people of Kashmir go through without anyone paying attention, it places more burdens on the Muslim peoples to speak out on behalf of their brothers and sisters who do not have the ability to talk about their suffering.
There is pressure on some members of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation to normalize with Israel. Is it possible for Pakistan to normalize with Israel before the Palestinian people reach their legal rights?
Pakistan has a long history with Palestine, and my family has a history and long ties and deep relations with the Palestinian people. We will never forget the deep love and respect of the Palestinian people for us, and Yasser Arafat’s relationship with my grandfather, and with my mother when I became Prime Minister of Pakistan. We will never let the Palestinian people down, and we will not leave them alone in difficult days.

How can Pakistan help the Palestinian people achieve their goals? The Israeli entity has gone too far in its crimes. The Palestinian people, His Excellency the Minister, need help?
If we look today, we see that the world is seeing more interest in diplomacy in exchange for more injustice and the proliferation of authoritarian governments. We now see that there are those who want to enforce the law of “power is right”, whether in Kashmir or in Palestine, there is a lot of suffering in this world. What we can do now is not only to offer moral support to the Palestinians, but also to be their voice and explain their suffering, because sometimes they need someone to talk to the world about their suffering. We must work with global parties to bring about justice for them, which this international organization promised us when it was founded. We believe that this struggle is transgenerational, and each generation plays its role and passes it on to the next generation to achieve the freedom of their people, and it is the responsibility of the new generations in Palestine and Kashmir, to fight for their rights and defend their families, siblings with the goal of achieving rights.
Honorable Minister, what are you saying to the Palestinian leaders to bridge the rift between them for the sake of the Palestinian cause?
For my part, on behalf of my party, and within the framework of Pakistan, I do not want to impose a specific vision or ideas on the Palestinian people. But experience has shown that teamwork is always better, and we must not allow forces that want to divide us to succeed in such important matters. I wish all Palestinian parties to work together to achieve their common goal. We are here to support what the people of Palestine want.
We believe that this struggle is transgenerational, and each generation plays its part and passes it on to the next generation to achieve the freedom of their people.
My last question is about the assassination of journalist Sherine Abu Akleh. Do you have a message to offer to the families of the deceased and the Palestinian people?
Nothing I can say is enough to alleviate the pain felt by the Palestinian people in general, and the families of the deceased in particular, before this crime. What can we say if the journalist does not feel safe in front of the occupying forces, has a camera in his hand and wears a purple jacket, then they are talking about democracy!
We hope that the shock of the world with this crime will change in addressing the tragedy that the Palestinian people are currently experiencing. How can one not be safe while working as a journalist and doing his job to report on the violence that is going on there. How can you not be safe while in the coffin. This is outrageous.
