ISLAMABAD: The rumours about begining of Pakistan-Israel trade is sheer propaganda after the Press Release of American Jewish Congress which was misrepresented.
Even in their press release they nowhere mentioned about official trade between Pak-Israel.
However, neither we have any trade relations with Israel nor we intend to develop any. A Jewish Pakistani Fishel Benkhald has sent food samples to three businessmen in Jerusalem & Haifa through UAE in personal capacity who he met in foreign countries during food exhibitions.
Nevertheless, it was not supported by Pakistan Government and no banking or official channel was involved either.
Moreover, in our talks with UAE, the issue of origin will be strictly implemented. UAE has curtailed tarrifs on 96% goods traded with Israel which has benefited traders from UAE to Israel.
