On its 76th anniversary,
CIR calls on UN to obligate Israel to international resolutions or cancel membership
Council on International Relations – Palestine congratulated the United Nations on the occasion of its 76th anniversary, noting its important role in spreading international peace and security throughout these years.
The council said in a statement issued Sunday: Although the organization has achieved many achievements at the level of international peace and security around the world, it has failed to achieve justice and the rule of law in the Palestinian case.
The Palestinian people have been subjected to Israeli terrorism and aggression for seven decades, and the organization has not been able to protect them or help them get rid of the occupation and achieve their goal of freedom and independence, the CIR added.
The Council added that the UN is still required to shoulder its responsibilities towards the decades-old issue of the Palestinian people, and it must work diligently until the Palestinian people obtain their full rights.
The Council called on the organization to oblige “Israel” to abide by the international resolutions or to cancel its membership.
The Council indicated that “Israel” is still violating the conditions stated in the decision to accept it as a member of the United Nations, namely the establishment of an independent Palestinian state and the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes from which they were forcibly displaced.
The United Nations celebrates its seventy-sixth anniversary, at a time when the world is witnessing great turmoil that is exacerbated by an unprecedented global health crisis, and unresolved issues, including the Palestinian issue.
