Kuwait denounces Israel
KUWAIT CITY, March 22: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its condemnation and denunciation to the racist and provocative remarks made by an Israeli official of the occupation government, through which he denied the existence of the Palestinian people and the use of a map of Israel that includes the borders of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
In a statement, the ministry affirmed Kuwait’s rejection of the continued inflammatory and irresponsible remarks that contradict historical facts and geographical reality, and are inconsistent with all international laws and norms.
The Ministry reiterated Kuwait’s principled and firm position, which calls for the need for the United Nations and the international community to assume its moral and legal responsibilities to stop such extremist statements targeting the Palestinian people, and the need to work to deter these negative practices.
The statement noted the need to provide the Palestinian people with full international protection, and support for all UN and international efforts aimed at reaching a permanent solution. The statement underlined the need for a comprehensive and just solution for the Palestinian people in accordance with international resolutions, the road map, and the Arab peace initiative, which in turn leads to the people obtaining all their legitimate Palestinian rights and establishing their independent state within the borders of 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital. In other news, the Arab League condemned on Wednesday the Israeli Knesset’s approval of a bill allowing the return of Jewish settlers to four settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories that were dismantled in 2005.
The League Assistant General Secretary of Palestine and the Occupied Arab Territories Affairs Saeed Abu Ali affirmed in a statement that this racist colonial legislation constituted an explicit violation of the Security Council Resolution number 2334. Abu Ali called the international community to intervene immediately and pressure Israel to respect the decisions of the international legitimacy by stopping all its illegal and racist actions. He also called for the need to stop the Israeli aggression against Palestinian lands and people defending their right to live and exercise basic human rights to independence and independence. (KUNA)
