Pakistan has urged the United Nations Security Council to push for a peace process that would end the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and pave the way for an independent State of Palestine.

Speaking on behalf of OIC countries at UN, Ambassador Munir Akram said peace and justice require accountability for the human rights violations and heinous crimes being witnessed for too long in Occupied Palestine.

Pakistani envoy said the constantly deteriorating and extremely volatile situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, is getting worse.
