‘End suffering of Palestinians,’ says UAE

NEW YORK: The UAE warned of the continued international impotence in solving the Palestinian issue in light of the illegal Israeli settlement policy, calling on the international community to end the suffering of the Palestinian people and save the two-state solution by putting an end to the occupation.

This came during a statement delivered by Jamal Al Musharakh, Deputy Permanent Representative of the UAE Mission to the United Nations, UN, before the special meeting of the General Assembly on two items related to the question of Palestine and the situation in the Middle East.

Al Musharakh quoted the message of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan to the Chairman of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, in which he stressed continued support of the UAE Government and its people to the struggle of the Palestinian people to realise their full legitimate aspirations to establish an independent sovereign state, like all other people.

He also voiced the deep concern of the UAE over the continued, serious deterioration of security, humanitarian and social conditions in occupied Palestinian territories, including the escalation of violence, and the absence of solution in sight, which disrupts the recovery of inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.

The UAE official expressed his regret at the continuing plight of the Palestinian people for more than 70 years despite the tireless efforts made by the UN, its agencies, and all relevant regional and international actors working to resolve the Palestinian issue.

Al Musharakh also shed light on the upsurge of aggressive practices and policies introduced by Israel, and its illegal efforts to suppress the Palestinian people, noting that the Israeli authorities continue the demolition of Palestinian homes and properties, confiscation of land, forcible deportation of Palestinians, use of excessive force, and detention that includes women and children.

As the Israeli authorities continue the blockade in Gaza Strip, it has worsened the humanitarian situation to the lowest level, compounded with high level of unemployment, he added.
