Sixty-sixth session

49th plenary meeting

President: Mr. Al-Nasser .................................................(Qatar)





The Acting President: In connection with this item, I would like to recall that the General Assembly, at its 2nd plenary meeting, on 16 September 2011, decided to consider agenda item 64 in plenary meeting and in the Third Committee on the understanding that, inter alia, the Assembly, in plenary meeting, would consider the annual report of the Human Rights Council on its activities for the year.

Ms. Rodríguez Camejo (Cuba) (spoke in Spanish): ...

/...

The Council has demonstrated its capacity to respond to emergencies that require the attention of the international community. It has frequently studied Israel’s grave violations of the human rights of the Palestinian people.

/...

Ms. AlGharabally (Kuwait) (spoke in Arabic): ...

/...

On the other hand, Kuwait has increased its established voluntary contributions to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to support its efforts and mandated functions. In that regard, in discussing human rights and the need to strengthen respect for human rights, we must vigorously denounce the oppressive Israeli policies and practices that continue to violate the fundamental human rights of the defenceless Palestinian people in the occupied territories.

We also call upon the international community to assume its responsibility in order to compel Israel, the occupying Power, to comply with resolutions of international legitimacy and renounce its expansionist and aggressive policies; and to compel it to respect international humanitarian law and the principles of human rights.

/...

Mr. Abdelaziz (Egypt) (spoke in Arabic): ...

/...

We should therefore reiterate the importance of not politicizing the Council and the significance of its central role in ensuring respect for all human rights and international humanitarian law, in particular in the occupied Palestinian territories, by verifying Israel’s full compliance with all its international obligations, including its commitment to cooperate fully with the Special Rapporteur and the fact-finding missions mandated by the Human Rights Council to investigate gross human rights violations in the occupied Palestinian territories.

/...

Mr. Mohamed (Maldives): ...

/...

On the issue of Palestine, the Maldives continues to extend its unwavering support for the creation of an independent State of Palestine, living side by side and at peace with the State of Israel. We remain extremely concerned about the human rights situation in Gaza and the fate of the Palestinian people suffering under the Israeli blockade. We call upon all parties concerned to take on board the recommendations contained in the report of the Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict (see A/64/490, annex), and to take immediate measures to protect the rights of all Palestinian people.

The meeting rose at 6.25 p.m.
