On the other hand, Pakistan has said that there is no pressure on Israel to surrender and Pakistan will not recognize Israel until the Palestinian issue is resolved.
For the remainder of US President Donald Trump’s presidency, Israel has begun work on establishing a fifth Islamic state, possibly in Asia, but with Pakistan. As the Israeli minister said, Reuters quoted.
Under President Trump’s administration, Israel has so far established diplomatic relations with four Islamic countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan.
President Trump’s term expires on January 20.
Reuters reports that Israel’s Minister for Regional Cooperation, Offer Akonis, was asked in an interview with Israel’s Net TV that there was a possibility that Donald Trump would remain in office during his presidency. Israel will join a fifth Islamic country. Establish a relationship too?
He said the United States was announcing another Islamic State relationship with Israel.
Ekonis said it was now possible for Israel to establish relations with two countries, one in the Middle East and the other in Asia. He said that in the Middle East and Asia, Oman was “a small Muslim country” but it was not Pakistan.
Indonesia said last week that it would not establish relations with Israel until a Palestinian state was decided. Reuters says Malaysia has announced a similar approach. Bangladesh has also said it is not currently interested in diplomatic relations with Israel.
Reuters says Oman has praised US diplomacy in its relations with Islamic countries, but has not commented on the possibility of its relations with Israel.
Pakistan has said it is not under any pressure to surrender to Israel and will not recognize Israel until the Palestinian issue is resolved.
Earlier, Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry had told the media that Pakistan was not considering any offer to recognize Israel.
