NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, May 31: Pakistan has taken a strong note of attack on Gaza-bound aid ship by Isareli commandos. It has termed it as a blatant breach of international covenants by the Israeli troops.
“The Israeli aggression is a clear violation of international law. We are deeply concerned about the safety and security of renowned anchor person and the executive director of Aaj News, Syed Talat Hussain and his fellow journalists who were on board the aid-ship, Freedom Flotilla,” the Pakistan Foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told reporters here.
He said that efforts were underway to find out the whereabouts of the media team.
In view of the emerging humanitarian situation in the region Qureshi said that an emergency meeting of the Arab League has been convened. “We believe there is a dire need to hold an emergency meeting of Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) immediately.”
Meanwhile, interior minister Rehman Malik has sought the help of Interpol chief to trace the whereabouts of the missing Pakistani nationals.
Pertinently, at least 20 persons were killed when Israeli commandos stormed the Freedom Flotilla ship carrying relief goods to Gaza.
