ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office (FO) on Monday expressed “grave concern” on the opening of a US embassy in Jerusalem, which it deemed “a violation of international law and several United Nations Security Council resolutions”.

“Pakistan has noted with grave concern that despite calls by the international community to comply with the UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions on the two-state solution, the US is moving its embassy to the holy city of Jerusalem,” the FO said.“This represents a violation of international law and several United Nations Security Council resolutions, in particular resolutions 476 and 478. “The government and people of Pakistan stand firmly with the Palestinian people.”
