The League of Arab States welcomed the resolution adopted by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) with an overwhelming majority, recommending the UN Security Council to reconsider Palestine's full UN membership favorably and stipulating that Palestinians are fully eligible for full membership in the UN Organization.
In a statement on Saturday, Secretary-General of the League of Arab States Ahmed Aboul Gheit, stated that the overwhelming vote for this resolution unequivocally underscores the global desire and trend of the global public opinion in support of this resolution, affirming that the UNGA's voice was vibrant and straightforward, making it harder for all parties to turn a deaf ear or become oblivious to the connotation of this resolution.
Aboul Gheit emphasized that countries that are convinced of the two-state solution should accelerate their steps towards converting this vision into reality, highlighting that the recognition of the Palestinian statehood to regain full membership in the UN represents a critical step on this track, because it places Palestine in the position that it deserves and reflects its eligibility for gaining an independent statehood.
It sends a correct message to the Palestinians at a time of full tragedy they are being exposed to, who feel that the world has become unable to halt the massacres being committed against them, he added, pointing out that the arrogant position of Israeli representatives on this overwhelming vote expressed by the UNGA reveals the truth about the occupier's stance with regard to the international rules-based order, along with the occupier's perspective on the UN Organization and its relevant norms and rules.
He stressed the importance of ramping up incessant diplomatic pressures so as to embarrass the parties that provide political cover for Israel in the UN Organization, particularly the UN Security Council.
