CNN: Pakistan adds its voice to growing swell of criticism7 December 2017 | 05:59 | FOCUS News Agency
“Pakistan shares the international outrage and is deeply concerned over the implications of this decision for international peace and security, especially in the Middle East. Pakistan calls upon the UN Security Council to take cognizance of this situation and take steps in accordance with the UN Charter,” the statement said.
It urged the US to "revisit its decision as soon as possible in order to avoid the potentially grave repercussions in the region and beyond" and welcomed an announcement by Turkey to convene an Extraordinary Islamic Summit next week to discuss the issue.
Trump's decision has united much of the fractious Islamic world in opposition, drawing criticism from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, Egypt and Turkey, among other countries.
