SUMMARY RECORD OF THE 5th MEETING
Held at the Palais des Nations, Geneva,
on Wednesday, 22 April 2009, at 10 a.m.
President: Mr. WAKO (Kenya)
93. Mr. AL BADER (Kuwait) ...
94. There was a need to end impunity in respect of human rights violations. The Palestinian people continued to live under occupation, which was a form of racism, although they had the right to self-determination and to an independent State with Jerusalem as its capital. A just peace in the Middle East would not be achieved until Israel applied all the relevant United Nations resolutions, ceased to violate Palestinian rights, revoked discriminatory legislation and withdrew from the occupied Golan Heights.
95. Mr. AL ZAABI (United Arab Emirates) ...
96. The Palestinians continued to live under the yoke of occupation, subjected to the excessive use of force, the loss of their lands and a lack of job opportunities. His delegation wished to reiterate its commitment to the establishment of an independent Palestinian State.
The meeting rose at 1.05 p.m.
