GENEVA, March 20 (KUNA) -- Kuwait is pushing the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to keep addressing the issue of Israeli violations on Arab soil and that it should be part and parcel of UNHRC's agenda.
The remarks were made by Kuwait's permanent delegate to the UN Ambassador Jamal Al-Ghunaim on Monday, during compelling discussions held with the UN's Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories Michael Lynk.
The Kuwaiti diplomat noted that his country's unwavering commitment to the Palestinian issue stems from the "graveness of Israeli violations that are tantamount to war crimes and crimes against humanity." Moreover, Al-Ghunaim said that "turning a blind eye to Israeli violations will only embolden the country to continue violating international humanitarian laws, adding that Kuwait vehemently condemns "Israeli aggressions against the Palestinian people." Meanwhile, Kuwait's permanent delegate to the UN voiced Kuwait's growing concerns over increasing Israeli settlements on Palestinian land, practices he slammed as unlawful and catastrophic.
Al-Ghunaim also excoriated Israel for its blockade on Gaza, which induced a wide array of humanitarian crises, saying that Kuwait will remain steadfast in its support of the Palestinian people. (end) ta.nam
