Islamabad: Pakistan on Monday called for the immediate and full implementation of International Court of Justice's Advisory Opinion regarding Occupied Palestinian Territories.        

In a statement, Foreign Office Spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said the Court's ruling would be an important step towards ending the Israeli occupation, realization of the inalienable right of the Palestinians to self-determination, and creation of a viable, secure, contiguous and sovereign State of Palestine on the basis of the pre-1967 borders and with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.       

Welcoming the ICJ's Opinion, she said the ICJ's ruling clearly establishes that Israel's unlawful policies and practices in the Occupied Palestinian territory are in breach of Israel's obligation to respect the right of Palestinian people to self-determination.

The Foreign Office spokesperson said Israel is under an obligation to end its unlawful occupation, cease its illegal settlement activities and to make reparation for the damage caused.

It may be recalled that Pakistan had made a written submission to the ICJ on the case in July 2023, and later also shared a rejoinder with the Court.

Pakistan also participated in the oral public hearing held by the ICJ on the case in February 2024.  

In its submissions to the ICJ, Pakistan reiterated its strong and unwavering support for the right to self-determination of the Palestinians and highlighted the illegality of the Israeli occupation.
