MADRID, 19 Abr. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The Palestinian Presidency has "strongly" condemned and described as "immoral" the veto used this Thursday by the United States in the UN Security Council in the vote held for Palestine's entry as a full member of the international organization. process that has been paralyzed since 2011.

In this sense, he has pointed out that the US decision is "unfair, immoral and unjustified", and "challenges the will of the international community, which strongly supports obtaining full membership of the State of Palestine in the United Nations", as stated the Palestinian news agency Wafa.

Likewise, he has stressed that the "aggressive US policy towards Palestine, its people and their legitimate rights represents a clear aggression against International Humanitarian Law, and encourages the continuation of the Israeli genocidal war against" the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, "and pushes the region further to the brink, in light of the continued Israeli occupation."

"This aggressive US veto reveals the contradictions of US policy, which seeks, on the one hand, to support the two-state solution, while preventing the international institution from implementing this solution through its repeated use of the veto in the Security Council against Palestine and its legitimate rights," he indicated.

However, he thanked the Member States that have voted in favor of the State of Palestine obtaining full membership in the international organization, "noting that this international vote in favor of the rights of the Palestinian people is proof that the world "is united behind the values ​​of truth, justice, freedom and peace that the Palestinian cause represents, and against the continued crimes of the occupation."

On the other hand, he added that "achieving peace, security and stability in our region and in the world depends on the implementation of international legitimacy resolutions, ending the Israeli occupation of the land of the State of Palestine and recognizing the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, above all the right to self-determination and the establishment of their independent State with East Jerusalem as its capital.
