WASHINGTON: Pakistan has once again underscored the urgent need to end the ongoing violence in Gaza where unabated Israeli attacks have left more than a thousand Palestinians dead and many more injured.

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Tariq Fatemi while addressing the UN Security Council meeting and meetings with diplomats in New York, called on the 15-member body to take effective action to resolve the Palestinian issue and bring peace in the region.

According to Radio Pakistan, he called for the stepping up of efforts to end the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and said that the Security Council should live up to its promises and prove to the world that it is succeeding in its declared objectives -- maintaining international peace and security.

Fatemi held meetings with the UN Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson, US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power and Palestinian Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour to discuss the situation in Gaza.
