ALGERIA- Algerian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sabri Boukadoum, called today, Thursday, the Secretary-General of the United Nations to include the settlement of the Palestinian conflict as his top priority, urging him to personally intervene in the efforts aimed at putting an end to the massacre that the Palestinian people are currently experiencing.
In a press release issued by the Ministry, Mr. Boukadoum took the opportunity of his participation in the meeting of Arab foreign ministers in New York, in which the Secretary-General of the United Nations Organization participated, to call on Antonio Guterres to “personally intervene in the efforts aimed at putting an end to the massacre that the Palestinian people are currently experiencing.”
The same source indicates that Mr. Boukadoum mentioned that this series of violence began with the oppression of El Quds residents during the month of Ramadan and the threats to expel the residents of Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan from their homes, which is a violation of the United Nations resolutions.
The head of the Algerian diplomacy, who holds the presidency of the Arab group at the United Nations for the month of May, emphasized that “everyone knows the truth and that it is useless to search for excuses to justify the action of the colonial power.”
The press release adds that Mr. Boukadoum pointed out that “the entire international community has violated its duty to protect the Palestinian people, who are in a fragile humanitarian situation in front of a blind war machine.”
In this regard, Mr. Boukadoum urged the Secretary-General of the United Nations Organization, António Guterres, to launch a “call to the international community to provide emergency humanitarian assistance to the people of Gaza through the various UN agencies.”
Mr. Boukadoum also advocated for “a permanent solution to the Palestinian issue, which would allow the Palestinian people to exercise their inalienable rights in an independent state within the 1967 borders, with Holy El Quds as its capital.”
