New York, SANA- UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People on Wednesday held an annual meeting, to observe the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, which will be on Friday.
The meeting was held in the presence of the President of the United Nations General Assembly, the President of the UN Security Council, and the head of the office of UN Secretary – General.
Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem read a solidarity message during the meeting, in which he affirmed that long decades have passed since the Israeli occupation of Arab lands, during which UN adopted a large number of resolutions demanding Israel to end this occupation and withdraw from all occupied Arab lands to the line of June 4th, 1967, and establish a Palestinian state with al- Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital.
Al-Moallem added that it is regrettable that the United Nations is still unable to implement its resolutions, and oblige the Israeli occupation authorities to stop war crimes and crimes against humanity committed systematically and the obligation to respect the international law , international humanitarian law, and human rights instruments because of the support provided by UNSC permanent members states to Israel in an extreme disregard of the international law and the resolutions of international legitimacy.
Al-Moallem stressed that decisions made by US President Donald Trump to recognize the annexation of al-Quds to the Israeli occupation entity , and his other decision, which he called Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan, as well as the attempt to pass and market the so-called“Deal of Century”, all come within the framework of liquidating the historical and inalienable rights of the Palestinian people and the rest of the occupied Arab territories in Golan and southern Lebanon.
He indicated that it is no secret that Israel has been supporting the terrorists and their organizations in Syria for more than eight years with the aim of weakening Syria and its role in defending the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.
Al-Moallem stressed the Syrian Arab Republic’s firm and principled stance in support of the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination and the establishment of an independent state on all its national soil with al-Quds as its capital and guaranteeing the right of return for refugees in accordance with resolution No. 194 of 1948.
