On 14 July 2020, the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People held its 401st meeting as a virtual event.
The main points of discussion related to potential international response to threats of annexation of parts of the Occupied Palestinian Territory by Israel, the occupying Power, recent pledges by Member States to UNRWA, and support to the Palestinian people in the context of the COVID19 crisis. Calling for solidarity with the Palestinian people, Member States expressed concern that any unilateral attempts at annexation would risk the two-State solution and would be construed as threat to international peace and stability.
