Nasser Bourita, Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates, said on Tuesday in Rabat that Morocco expresses its support and solidarity with the Palestinian people during this “delicate and critical phase” and reiterates its appeal to the international community and world powers to act to stop the aggression suffered by this people and its territory.
At a press conference held in conjunction with his Omani counterpart, Badr Bin Hamad Bin Hamoud Al-Busaidi, at the conclusion of the sixth Morocco-Oman Joint Commission, Bourita stated that the Kingdom of Morocco reiterated its condemnation and rejection of the numerous Israeli aggressions against Jenin and the deaths and destruction they have resulted in.
The attacks on the Palestinian territories, according to Bourita, do not help to foster a climate in the area that is favorable to discussion and peace.
He went on to say that the current situation was seen by the Kingdom as “very critical,” endangering any prospects for Middle East peace and stoking the fires of extremism and violence.
Bourita emphasized the importance of the Palestinian cause and reaffirmed that without a fair and comprehensive resolution to this problem, there would never be peace in the Middle East.
He recalled the international agreement on a two-state solution to the Palestinian problem, with the state of Israel and the independent state of Palestine existing inside the lines of June 1967, with East Al-Quds serving as Palestine’s capital.
The Omani foreign minister emphasized that a comprehensive, just, and peaceful resolution to the Palestinian issue is necessary for the Middle East to experience long-term stability and growth.
In order to restore the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative, he also attracted the attention of the international community and powerful states to the significance of obeying international law.
