Prime Minister Imran Khan reaffirmed Pakistan’s resolute support for an immediate cease of hostilities and a peaceful resolution of the Ukrainian issue via discussion and diplomacy.
He announced this today when speaking on the phone with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskii (Tuesday).
Imran Khan expressed tremendous concern that the military war in Ukraine is still ongoing when discussing the current scenario. He went on to say that he has been emphasizing the conflict’s negative economic impact on poor nations, as seen by rising oil and commodity prices.
Prime Minister Imran Khan underscored the need of humanitarian support for civilians, stating that Pakistan had dispatched two C-130 planes to Ukraine with humanitarian relief supplies.
The Prime Minister recalled that during the last OIC-CFM meeting in Islamabad, the Foreign Ministers of Islamic nations voiced grave concern over the deteriorating security and humanitarian situation resulting from the crisis in Ukraine. Foreign Ministers urged for an immediate halt to hostilities and emphasised OIC member nations’ commitment to help and aid the dialogue process.
Non-partisan nations like Pakistan, according to the Prime Minister, are in a position to assist in bolstering efforts for a cease-fire and a diplomatic settlement.
Prime Minister Imran Khan also expressed gratitude to Ukrainian authorities for their assistance in evacuating Pakistani students and nationals, as well as Embassy personnel.
The Prime Minister praised other countries’ efforts to assist a diplomatic solution.
