New York – Yesterday evening, Tuesday, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution entitled “The Right of the Palestinian People to Self-Determination,” by an overwhelming majority. The resolution received the support of 172 countries, and 4 countries opposed it: (the United States, the Zionist entity, Micronesia, and Nauru). 10 countries abstained from voting.

This resolution reaffirms the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, including the right to have their independent state of Palestine, and urges all countries, specialized agencies and organizations of the United Nations system to continue supporting and assisting the Palestinian people to achieve their right to self-determination as soon as possible.

The resolution also stresses the urgent necessity to end, without delay, the Zionist occupation that began in 1967, and to achieve a just, lasting and comprehensive peace settlement between the Palestinian and Zionist sides, based on the relevant United Nations resolutions, the Madrid Terms of Reference, the Arab Peace Initiative, and the roadmap plan to find peace.

A permanent solution to the Zionist-Palestinian conflict on the basis of the two-state solution. It also stressed the need to respect and preserve the unity, contiguity and integrity of the entire occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.

Following the vote, Riyad Mansour, Permanent Representative of the State of Palestine to the United Nations, expressed his deep thanks to the countries that voted in favor of the resolution, praising the overwhelming support for it, which indicates that the international community strongly supports the rights of the Palestinian people in all their aspects, especially in the midst of the barbaric Zionist aggression on our people in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, stressing the need to oblige the Zionist entity to implement these decisions.
