Palestine recalls Ambassador to Pak over appearance with Hafiz Saeed

India has taken a grim view after reports emerged that the Palestinian ambassador to Pakistan, Walid Abu Ali, recently shared a stage with Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed in Rawalpindi.

India had lodged a protest with the Palestinians on Saturday, calling the envoy's association with Saeed "unacceptable".

Palestine has recalled its Ambassador to Pakistan, Walid Abu Ali, for attending a rally organised by Hafiz Saeed in Rawalpindi on Friday.

The envoy has been asked to report back to Ramallah, Hindustan Times reported. The countries disregarded Trump's threat to cut aid to the countries that voted for the resolution. "We stand together with India in its fight against terrorism", Al Haija said. Nobody in Palestine... whether the President, or the Foreign Ministry, or anyone, finds this acceptable.

KEY PLAY: On second-and-10, Book completes an 18-yard pass to Chris Finke to the ND 45 to set up the touchdown on the next play. Notre Dame , missing four players due to suspensions, beat LSU 21-17 for their second bowl win over the Tigers in three years.

India and the Palestinian Authority are also discussing a possible visit to Ramallah by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in February - seen by some here as a conciliatory gesture in connection with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to India in January. "We consider it our prime responsibility to liberate Kashmir from India". It is imperative to not let the right-wing, pro-Israel, pro-militarisation lobby in India exploit what happened in Rawalpindi as remotely representative of the Palestinian people and our values. "It is a historical relationship and we are working to strengthen it".

In a statement addressed to India, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the envoy's participation "in the presence of individuals accused of supporting terrorism" was "an unintended mistake, but not justified".

Miffed with photos of Palestinian Ambassador sharing the dais with Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has chose to register the protest with Palestinian authorities.

MEA said the Palestinian side has conveyed deep regrets over the incident and assured India that they are taking serious cognisance of their ambassador's presence at this event. "We take note of the assurances given by the Palestine side".

Saeed, the founder of Lashker-e-Taiba, is wanted by the United States, which has offered a $10 million reward for his arrest, but Pakistan has refused extradition requests and allows him to operate relatively freely. "There were some politicians, parliamentarians..." So, he did not know the terrorist personally. Delhi voted with the Arab world, and majority, at the UN General Assembly.

Palestine wants to maintain a healthy relationship with India.
