FM participates in Arab League’s ministerial session
Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Ayman Safadi, participated on Wednesday, in the meeting of the 154th regular session of the Arab League at the ministerial level.
Speaking via teleconferencing, Safadi said developments, which took place since since the last session, confirm once again the bloc’s principle, the revival of pan-Arab collective work, is an “indisepnsable” condition to address the “grave challenges” affectig us all.
In Jordan’s speech sent to Arab League’s Secretariat, Safadi said the Arab nations need to put in place a “clear” road map and a “practical” working mechanism to meet common challenges, serve joint causes and achieve the aspirations of our peoples.
The Palestinian issue, our first central issue, is the basis of the conflict and its resolution on foundations that ensure the fulfillment of all the rights of the Palestinian people is the only way to achieve a comprehensive and just peace accepted by people, according to Safadi.
To achieve peace, occupation should end and a free, independent and sovereign Palestinian state with occupied Jerusalem as its capital, on the June 4, 1967 lines should be established, on the basis of the two-state solution and in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative, Safadi added.
Continuing: “No comprehensive and just peace will be achieved as long as the occupation has not ended and the Israeli measures that undermine all chances for peace and the foundations on which the peace process were based, especially the land-for-peace equation, continue,” he said.
The Arab nations, he said, should continue to work with the international community to stop all Israeli measures that undermine the chances for a just peace acceptable to the people, adding: “We condemn all violations of the Arab, Islamic and Christian identity of Islamic and Christian sanctities in Jerusalem.”
