Maldives support for Palestinian cause is unshakable: FM Shahid

Maldives commitment and support towards the Palestinian cause is “unshakable”, declares Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid.

During his statement delivered at the Emergency Foreign Ministerial Conference of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Shahid, jointly with the other member states of the OIC, strongly condemned the recent announcement made by the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who announced his intention “to impose Israeli sovereignty on all the regions of the Jordan Valley, the Northern Dead Sea, and the settlements in the West Bank” if he is to be re-elected to the post of PM, revealed the OIC via a statement.

Announcing that Maldives will extend its full support to the country during the upcoming United Nations General Assembly, Shahid stated that votes will be cast accordingly on a number of resolutions, articulating this support.

Further, he went on to reiterate Maldives solidarity with the Palestinian statehood in realizing the absolute rights of its people, to self-determination and to oppose any illegal settlement activity that takes place in the occupied territories. He also urged to transfer countries diplomatic posts to the Holy City of Jerusalem.
