Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Riyad al-Malki, met and briefed the President of the United Nations General Assembly, Csaba Kőrösi on the overall developments in the Palestinian arena.
During the meeting, which was held on the sidelines of the Security Council meeting at the ministerial level devoted to the Middle East and the Palestinian cause, in New York, al-Maliki placed Kőrösi on the ongoing crimes of the Israeli occupation and settlers against Palestinian people and their sanctities.
He said that the statements regarding the Palestinian cause are good, but without obtaining anything tangible or practical steps for the Security Council to carry out its mandate to maintain peace and security, and to end the Israeli colonial occupation, noting that the involvement of many countries in this meeting is an indication of the importance of the Palestinian cause to the international community.
Al-Malki stressed that justice and peace will be achieved when the Palestinian people obtain their inalienable rights, foremost of which is the right to return, self-determination, independence for the State of Palestine and the end of the Israeli occupation.
In turn, Kőrösi affirmed that the Palestinian cause and the rights of the Palestinian people receive great support from the General Assembly.
