Morocco reiterates adamant support for Palestinian cause
Morocco’s King Mohammed VI has stated that the North African country will keep up adamant support for the Palestinian cause until the day the Palestinian people regain all their rights and establish a totally independent state with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.
“We stand by the Palestinian people and continue to support their legitimate rights in order to establish an independent Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital,” he announced in a message addressed to Chairman of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, Cheikh Niang.
He made the remarks on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, which is marked on November 29 yearly.
The monarch also stressed that Palestine is the central issue in the Middle East and will no doubt remain on top of Morocco’s priorities.
“Regardless of the profound changes and developments that have taken place in the Middle East in recent years, I am convinced that the Palestinian question is the key to a permanent and comprehensive solution in the Middle East region,” the king remarked.
He stated that a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict should be based on enabling all the people of this region to live peacefully and security in accordance with the tenets of the so-called two-state solution.
“It is necessary to break the current impasse as far as the peace process is concerned,” King Mohammed VI noted, asking for the revival of talks between Palestinians and the Israeli regime to solve all contentious problems.
The Moroccan king subsequently denounced the Tel Aviv regime’s settlement expansion activities, emphasizing the need “to refrain from any change that might affect the legal status of the occupied Palestinian territories, and to create right conditions for the resumption of meaningful and responsible negotiations.”
