Security Council: Algeria calls for adopting a new approach to activate the peace option and achieve a comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue


New York (United Nations) – Algeria called, on Tuesday from New York, for adopting a new approach to activate the peace option and achieve a “fair and comprehensive” solution to the Palestinian issue, stressing the need to respond with all rigor to the Zionist voices that vocally reject the two-state solution around which the international community has rallied as a solution. A just and final solution to the conflict in the Middle East.

This came in a speech by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the National Community Abroad, Ahmed Attaf, before the Security Council meeting about the situation in Palestine, especially in the Gaza Strip as a result of the brutal Zionist aggression, which he began by conveying a message of appreciation and gratitude from the President of the Republic, Mr. Abdel Majid Tebboune, to the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, and all bodies of the United Nations system “for what they have initiated and are continuing to do, in order to alleviate the tragedies affecting Gaza, heal its wounds and stop its bleeding.”

It is a message of support and appreciation for them – adds Mr. Attaf, who is participating in the meeting on behalf of the President of the Republic – “in return for their tireless efforts, despite the challenges to their credibility and the infringement on their authority, provocations and blackmail from an occupation that sees no limits to its power and tyranny.”

Mr. Attaf stressed that “it is worthy of us, in these intervening hours, to confront the illusions that feed the Israeli settler occupation by achieving security by eliminating the Palestinian national project” and to “prevent and nullify the continued occupation campaigns to confiscate and annex Palestinian lands, and encourage the construction and expansion of Israeli settlements.” “To prevent the possibility of the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state,” and “to curb the occupation and its illusions of reviving the ‘Greater Israel’ project on the ruins, ashes, and wreckage of the Palestinian national project.”

Based on all these considerations, the Minister renewed the historic demand to hold an international peace conference under the auspices of the United Nations, within the framework of which it would be agreed to end the Arab-Israeli conflict once and for all by resorting to international legitimacy resolutions and activating the two-state solution under “strict supervision, close follow-up and close guarantee” of society. International.

Mr. Attaf also stressed that what is happening in Gaza today “brings back to the forefront more than ever the imperative to quickly address the essence of the conflict by renewing and activating our collective commitment to the two-state solution around which the international community has rallied as a just, lasting and final solution.”

In this regard, the Minister called on the United Nations and the UN Security Council to “respond with all firmness and severity to the Israeli voices that have become vocal today in their rejection of this solution, and to the positions that underestimate global consensus and have nothing but denial and contempt for international legitimacy.”

Speaking about the responsibilities and duties imposed by the current situation towards Gaza, he stressed that “the highest priority belongs to the ceasefire, which does not go by a day without increasing rejection and resentment towards the procrastination regarding it and towards the weak justifications for not giving it the attention it deserves.”

Subjecting the occupation to international legal controls

Mr. Attaf said in this regard: “There are currently no goals higher than the goal of stopping aggression, genocide, displacement, deportation, starvation, destruction, sabotage and desecration,” so that – he adds – the “post-war arrangements” become meaningful and the diplomatic efforts aimed at resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict become meaningful. Actual and effective.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs believes that in the face of the continuation of the aggression, and the prospects for forcing the occupation to abandon it are still “blocked”, the situation “imposes on humanity gathered in this house three main challenges, the first of which is ensuring respect for the decisions, laws and legislation issued in its name, and not allowing or tolerating… Serious violations of everything it approved to ensure peaceful, civilized, and civilized coexistence among its members.”

As for the second challenge, it is “not accepting that one of its members has positioned himself above everyone else and benefits from transactions that appear to have been made for his benefit only in the form of exceptions, selections, privileges, and immunities that are unjustified and unacceptable,” the minister says.

As for the third challenge, he adds, it is “subjecting the Israeli settlement occupation to international legal controls, and putting a strict and decisive end to what many unanimously call unaccountability, impunity, and impunity.”

From this perspective, Algeria welcomes and highly appreciates the signs of moving away from these preferential treatments through “classy, courageous and bold” initiatives to force the occupation to bear its responsibilities, the minister says, highlighting in this context President Tebboune’s initiative to mobilize legal experts and international human rights organizations to sue the Zionist entity before the International bodies to end decades of the latter’s evasion of accountability, accountability and punishment, and South Africa’s initiative to file a lawsuit against the occupation before the International Court of Justice on charges of waging a war of genocide against Gaza.

He also referred in the context to the initiative of both Chile and Mexico to notify the International Criminal Court of the crimes of various forms and types that accompanied and continue to accompany the Zionist aggression on the Gaza Strip, stressing that “these initiatives call for support, praise and encouragement, because they represent correct steps on the right path.”

Mr. Attaf warned that “as much as Algeria urges these international judicial bodies to fully carry out their legal responsibilities and duties,” it “emphasizes to a greater extent the obligation to carry out the political and security responsibilities that fall on the Security Council as the primary body protecting and guarantor of international peace and security,” once again, Algeria’s call to grant full membership to the State of Palestine in the United Nations, “a demand that the Non-Aligned Movement adopted at its recent summit as an urgent measure to preserve the basic foundations of the two-state solution, and as an inevitable step to preserve the legal components of the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with its capital, Al-Quds Al-Sharif.”

The Foreign Minister stressed that “after Gaza, it is not possible to return to what was before Gaza,” and “it is not possible to return the Palestinian issue to the drawer to remain trapped in it for an indefinite period,” and “limit the international effort to taking care of the remnants, consequences, and remnants of war, and turn a blind eye.” About the causes and causes of the war itself. He concluded by emphasizing that “we are not allowed, and cannot allow ourselves, to leave the goal of peace and security in the Middle East hostage to the Israeli occupation, disposing of it however it wants, compromising with it whenever it wants, flattering with it whomever it wants, and putting pressure on whomever it wants.”
