In a speech during the virtual general debate of the seventy-fifth session of the United Nations General Assembly, Moroccan prime minister Saad Eddine El Othmani stated that the failure to settle the Palestinian issue and relaunch the peace process in the Middle East is a source of deep concern to the Kingdom. “The Palestinian people will gain their legitimate right to establish an independent and viable Palestinian state, with Jerusalem as its capital” EL Othmani said.

El Othmani also expressed rejection of all unilateral measures by the Israeli authorities in the occupied Palestinian territories, whether in the West Bank or in Jerusalem, stressing that these measures will deepen tension and instability in the region.

The PM recalled King Mohammed VI’s affirmation, as Chairman of the Jerusalem Committee emanating from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, on the importance of preserving the city of Jerusalem as it is a common heritage of humanity, a symbol of peaceful coexistence for the followers of the three religions, and a center of values, mutual respect and dialogue.
