NEW YORK, Nov 30 (KUNA) -- The State of Kuwait has reiterated its firm stance supporting the Palestinian cause, which has been on the top priorities of the United Nations.
This came in a speech by Kuwait's Permanent Mission to the UN delivered by second secretary Naif Ghazi Al-Otaibi before the 71st session of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday night.
Al-Otaibi, in the speech, lauded the steadfastness and struggle of Palestinian people against the Israeli occupation, stressing Kuwait's support for Palestinians to gain all their legal political rights through establishing an independent state of Palestine and with Eastern Jerusalem as its capital based on the 1967 borders, and set a deadline to end Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories. The State of Kuwait also has welcomed the French initiative calling for holding an international conference for peace to issue an international multilateral mechanism aiming to stop fully illegal settlement activities and then ending Israel's occupation, he said.
He affirmed that Kuwait has buttressed all efforts and endeavors by the international community aiming to reach a comprehensive and fair solution to the Palestinian cause based on the Arab Peace Initiative, the principles of international law and international legitimacy resolutions.
Kuwait has denounced Israel's continued illegal and inhumane blockage on the Gaza Strip that constitutes a violation of the US Security Council resolution 1860 and the Fourth Geneva Convention in 1949, he added.
Al-Otaibi called for releasing Palestinian detainees and prisoners and sending an international committee to investigate the situation in the Israeli prisons.
He affirmed Kuwait's backing to the Palestine's request calling for getting the UN full membership to be a step for achieving a comprehensive and fair solution to the Palestinian -Israeli conflict.
Kuwait also has buttressed Palestine to join the international charters, conventions and organizations, he stated.
The Kuwaiti representative called on the international community, mainly the Security Council, to provide an international protection to the unarmed Palestinian people living under the Israel's military occupation.
Kuwait stresses that the Security Council must assume its responsibilities towards implementing its resolutions, mainly 242, 338, 1397 and 1515, and pressing Israel to halt its blatant violations of the international humanitarian law on Palestinian territories so as to put an end to the cause, Al-Otaibi concluded.
