The people and government of Pakistan are unequivocally opposed the controversial plan of shifting the US Embassy.

"As the women of the Muslim world, we condemn the statement made by U.S. President Donald Trump regarding the recognition of Al-Quds [Jerusalem] as the capital of Israel", the council said in a statement.

"We would like to take this opportunity to recall the acknowledgement by the United Nations that the Palestinian Question can only be resolved on the basis of the 1967 borders and through the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian State whose capital would be East Jerusalem".

He warned that any violation of the recognized legal and historical status of the holy city, important to Jews, Muslims and Christians is likely to exacerbate religious and sectarian conflicts, while undermining worldwide efforts to create conditions conducive to the resumption of peace talks and jeopardize the chances for peace.
