Malegaon: Shoura Council in Saudi Arabia has called on the United Nations to intervene and stop ongoing Israeli settlement building in Palestinian territories.
Shoura Council Chairman Abdullah Al-Asheikh said the UN needed to stop Palestinian rights being violated. He was addressing delegates at the third World Conference of Speakers of Parliament, which concluded in Geneva on Wednesday, according to the Saudi daily, Arab News.
The conference is a global summit convened by The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), which focuses on democracy, the role of legislative institutions and their relationship with the United Nations.
The IPU is composed of members from 140 parliaments around the globe.
“The Middle East region is still witnessing continuous Israeli occupation and its daily violations of the rights of the Palestinian people, who live under oppression, destruction and genocide,” the newspaper quoted Al-Asheikh as saying.
“We see that those who speak the language of law and call for the application of the principles of human rights, justice and equality, ignores all of that when it comes to Israel. This double standard policy is shown in its ugliest form, and thus we see that the Palestinian individual is deprived of his least rights,” he said.
Al-Asheikh added that it was a painful reality that proves once again the urgent need for the United Nations to put a stop to these actions.
“The only way to find effective solutions for our bitter problems is through the framework of multilateral cooperation under the umbrella of the United Nations,” he said.
He urged the UN and IPU to pool their resources to devise a method to facilitate international cooperation and solve a problem that demands a conducive environment based on justice, mutual trust and real partnership, and construct sound relations between countries to deal with future challenges for the benefit of mankind.
