Pakistan Urges Full Implementation of ICJ Ceasefire Judgment in Gaza

Pakistan has called for the complete implementation of the International Court of Justice (ICJ)’s provisional judgment on Gaza, demanding an immediate and unconditional ceasefire. The country urged the UN Security Council to fulfill its mandated role in ensuring the enforcement of these measures.

During a weekly press briefing, Foreign Office spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch emphasized Pakistan’s commitment to upholding human rights, dignity, and the identity of the Palestinian people in accordance with the UN Charter, relevant resolutions, and international law. She stressed the need for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire to alleviate the suffering of the people of Gaza, as per the ICJ’s provisional judgment.

Expressing deep concern over the oppression of the Palestinian people, Baloch strongly condemned the Israeli attack inside the Ibn Sina Hospital in Jenin, categorizing it as a war crime against the Palestinian population. She highlighted that these atrocities run counter to the spirit of the ICJ’s provisional measures aimed at protecting the people of Gaza.

The spokesperson also criticized the suspension of funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), stating that it contradicts the spirit of the ICJ’s provisional measures. Baloch urged a reconsideration of the decision to suspend funding for UNRWA, emphasizing its crucial role in protecting and supporting the Palestinian people.

Baloch informed the media about the upcoming observance of Kashmir Solidarity Day on Feb 5, where Pakistan will reaffirm its solidarity with the Kashmiri people in their just struggle for the realization of their inalienable right to self-determination.

Additionally, the spokesperson highlighted diplomatic engagements, including the ongoing visit of Caretaker Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani to Brussels and the recent visit of Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian. She reiterated Pakistan’s commitment to strengthening institutional mechanisms for security cooperation and shared credible evidence linking Indian agents to extra-territorial and extra-judicial killings on Pakistani soil.

As part of proactive diplomacy, Pakistan has established diplomatic relations with St. Kitts & Nevis in the Caribbean and the Marshall Islands in the Pacific, deepening its engagement with Small Island Developing States. This comes as part of Pakistan’s ongoing efforts to enhance diplomatic ties over the past three years.
