A fair solution to the Palestinian issue would reduce the sources of tension and terror in the Middle East and across the globe, the Speaker of the Arab Parliament Ahmed bin Mohammed Al-Jarwan said yesterday.
“The occupation has violated all agreements that stipulate the punishment of those who carry out ethnic cleansing, and violated international treaties that protect civil and political rights,” Al-Jarwan said in a statement that was made available to the Anadolu Agency.
Al-Jarwan pointed out that “the Arab Parliament has considered Palestine its main cause, naming its current session ‘Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa’ and establishing a special committee to follow up on developments in this issue.”
He demanded that Arab parliaments act regionally and internationally to support the Palestinian people to obtain recognition of the Palestinian state. He also called on the United Nations to assume its responsibility by providing international protection to the Palestinians.
Founded in 1974, the Arab Parliament comprises divisions representing Arab parliaments and Shura councils.
