KUWAIT CITY (Dispatches) – Kuwait has renewed its position on the need to end the Zionist regime’s occupation of all the occupied Palestinian territories and for the Palestinian people to obtain their political rights, including their right to self-determination.
This came in a statement before the Fourth Committee of the General Assembly, the country’s diplomatic attaché of the permanent delegation to the United Nations, Mohammed al-Sawagh, during the discussion of the “decolonization” clause.
According to Kuwait News Agency, al-Sawagh confirmed that this is an implementation of the international resolutions, which allows for establishing an independent Palestinian state with East Al-Quds as its capital, and compels the Zionist regime, the occupying authority, to withdraw from all Arab territories occupied since 1967.
Al-Sawagh indicated that this is, “The only solution to reach a lasting, comprehensive and just peace in accordance with the relevant Security Council resolutions, the principle of land for peace, the road map and the Arab Peace Initiative.”
Kuwait uses international platforms to express its firm positions to support the rights of the Palestinian people, condemn the occupation and reject normalization.
With the start of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly in New York last month, the violations of the Zionist regime were slammed as a sign of the regime’s inflexibility, causes for continued suffering and an obstacle to peace.
An opinion poll earlier this year showed that most Kuwaitis support boycott of the Zionist regime and reject a normalization of relations with the occupying regime.
The opinion poll in August has revealed that 95 percent of Kuwaitis oppose any normalization of ties with the regime and 70 percent of the people adamantly disagree with developing any relations with the Zionist regime, Alkhaleej Online reported.
The report added that the Kuwaiti government and people support the Palestinian cause and are maintaining their stance on the issue.
Kuwaitis insist on imposing sanctions on the occupying regime, the report said, adding that Kuwait reaffirmed its stance against the regime by boycotting it in sports and trades and banning ships sailing between them or carrying cargo bound for the Israeli-occupied territories.
No Kuwaiti athlete, politician, intellectual, or writer accepts to be present in one place with Zionists, and they do not participate in any event that includes representatives of the occupying state, it concluded.
In September 2020, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed U.S.-brokered normalization agreements with the occupying regime. Sudan and Morocco followed suit, triggering a chorus of condemnation among Muslims, with Palestinians calling it a stab in their back.
