The Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, said, “The peace plan included in the Arab Peace Initiative and adopted by the Arab Summit in 2002 remains the basic plan agreed upon by the Arabs, to achieve a comprehensive and just peace between Arabs and Israel.”
Aboul Gheit stressed in his speech during the work of the 154th session of the Arab League Council at the level of foreign ministers, presumably headed by the State of Palestine, today, Wednesday, that the Palestinian issue was, is and will remain the subject of Arab consensus, and the goal that all our Arab countries seek, without An exception is ending the occupation and establishing an independent Palestinian state on the borders of June 4, 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
He explained that peace is the strategic choice for the Arabs since the Arab summit in 1996, and the peace that Arab peoples understand and accept will not be fully and comprehensively achieved before the Palestinian people obtain their legitimate rights, stressing that last April this Council rejected the Israeli annexation plan, and even considered it a crime War, and I renew in this regard the complete rejection of these plans altogether, in detail, in part, or in full, immediately or in the future.
He continued, as I reiterate our rejection of any plans or arrangements presented internationally that would undermine the Palestinian right, or prejudice the status of the city of Jerusalem, whose case should be resolved within the framework of the final settlement.
He said, “This is the basis of our Arab position, and it is a steadfast position, which enjoys consensus, and is supported by decisions issued by this council and successive Arab summits. The ministers are presented with a decision dealing with this issue, and it is the outcome of a diplomatic effort in which the League’s secretariat participated, and I do not think that the decision is He deviates from these constants, or deviates from them, but rather confirms them and emphasizes them.
He continued, I would like to point out here that the sovereign right of each country to conduct its foreign policy in the way it sees it is an indisputable right, and this is something that this council respects and approves, but rather we affirm at the same time the constants subject to consensus, which do not affect them political variables or Sovereign decisions.
Aboul Gheit added, “Our Arab region lives, and the world in its breadth, on the impact of successive crises, and crises by their nature are exceptional moments that reveal the depth of human sympathy among peoples and their ability to work together to face common challenges.”
He pointed out, “There is no doubt that the Corona pandemic that the world is facing has arranged effects that no country will be immune to. The world is going through an exceptional moment that pressures everyone, and there is an ongoing process to review stable practices, and everyone seeks to draw lessons and lessons for the future, despite the state of uncertainty.” Generated by the pandemic, we know with certainty that no country alone is capable of responding to a crisis of such intensity and scale. “
He explained that the Arab countries will need greater support, cooperation, and a higher level of coordination of future policies and plans, in order to pass this difficult stage with its deep and extended economic and social implications. The system of joint Arab action was in no way far from this unprecedented crisis. It is clear before us that there will be a collective response to the crisis.
And he added: From here, the General Secretariat launched an initiative to which the Economic and Social Council responded graciously, and issued an important statement in May on how to face the repercussions of the new Corona virus in Arab countries, noting that it came out with a number of recommendations, perhaps the most important of which was the study of establishing an Arab observatory to monitor and monitor diseases The emerging epidemic transboundary or resulting from natural disasters and crises, and I believe that this issue is of great importance, and it should be followed up with all seriousness in order to improve our performance and fortify our societies in the future.
The Secretary-General briefly reviewed the most important political developments in the Arab arena.
