Morocco is among the Arab countries that continue to reiterate their unwavering support in favor of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.
Rabat – Morocco renewed its steadfast support for the Palestinian cause and the legitimate rights of Palestinian people on Monday, November 25.
Moroccan ambassador to Cairo Ahmed Tazi affirmed Morocco’s position during his speech at an extraordinary meeting of the Council of Arab Foreign Ministers.
The ministers held the extraordinary meeting to discuss the US position on the illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied lands of Palestine.
In his speech, the Moroccan diplomat said that Morocco “confirms its firm position on all issues related to the just Palestinian cause.”
He added that all Israeli settlements on Palestinian lands, including East Jerusalem, are illegal and undermine the two-state peace process.
“We stand with our Palestinian brothers in their distress and support all their rights, especially the right to establish an independent and viable state of Palestine,” he said.
Tazi also spoke about Morocco’s determination to encourage any “sincere effort that would give dynamism to the Palestinian cause.”
The government of Morocco, through its diplomat, emphasized that Israel should respond to efforts towards achieving “serious and fruitful peace negotiations with our Palestinian brothers.”
The extraordinary meeting also seeks to discuss a response to the US administration’s position on Israeli settlements.
US State Secretary has backed Israeli’s settlement, stating that “Calling the establishment of civilian settlements inconsistent with international law has not advanced the cause of peace.”
Several countries, including Jordan, slammed the US for supporting Israel’s illegal settlements.
The UN Security Council also condemned the move.
