OIC Secretary General Dr Yousef Al-Othaimeen paid tribute to all countries that have voted in favor of Palestine, delivering a strong political, moral and humanitarian message of support for the Palestinian people’s rights and aspiration to establish an independent state of its own, with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.
Hailing the UN vote as a historic achievement, Dr Al-Othaimeen said it should galvanize global efforts to engage on a political process that delivers a two-state solution, in line with UN resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.
