OIC welcomes UNESCO resolutions on Palestine

Date: 03/05/2017

The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) welcomed the ratification by the Executive Board of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) of two resolutions on “Occupied Palestine” and “Cultural and Educational Institutions in the Occupied Arab Territories”. It commended the positions of states having supported these resolutions that affirm the international community’s rejection and condemnation of Israeli occupation policies and measures aimed at infringing on the inalienable political, cultural and religious rights of the Palestinian people in the city of Al-Quds, the capital of the State of Palestine.

The OIC Secretary General, Yousef A. Al-Othaimeen underscored the importance of implementing these resolutions and called on the international community to assume its responsibilities and take the requisite steps to end serious Israeli violations of the landmarks of the Arab-Islamic heritage in Palestine and particularly in the cities of Al-Quds and Al-Khaleel, which are in contradiction with the principles of international law and relevant UN resolutions.
