Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) and Hamas have finally agreed to a ceasefire after their most recent exchange of hostilities after a UN General Assembly (UNGA) debate on Thursday. The session was convened at the behest of 57-nation Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which included frantic lobbying by Pakistan and Turkey.
The Pakistan government on Friday defended remarks made by its Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in an interview with CNN, after they triggered allegations of anti-Semitism.
“Foreign Minister’s remarks made during his interview with the CNN cannot be construed as anti-Semitic by any stretch of the imagination. Any twist given to FM’s remarks would unfortunately prove the very point he was making,” a Pakistan Foreign Ministry statement said.
In an interview with CNN host Bianna Golodryga, just after he addressed the UN General Assembly (UNGA) debate on Thursday, Qureshi said that “Israel controls the media” and had “deep pockets”.
“Israel is losing out. They are losing the media war despite their connections,” Qureshi began his remarks.
“What are their connections?” the CNN anchor interrupted.
“Deep connections” replied Qureshi, to which Golodryga said, “I mean… I would call that an anti-Semitic remark.”
