UAE Cabinet calls for international protection for the Palestinians

posted on 22/05/2001: 583 views

At its weekly meeting, the UAE Cabinet reviewed reports on the deterioration of the situation in the Palestinian territories and called for swift action on the creation of an international force to protect the Palestinian people. In a statement issued after the meeting, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, said: "The Cabinet reviewed with great concern reports on the deterioration of the tragic situation and on the bloody incidents that are occurring daily in the Palestinian territories, as a result of the dangerous Israeli military aggression. "It expressed its dismay and repugnance at the ugly way in which Israeli military aggression, including the use of the Israel army and its tanks and armoured vehicles, and the use of F-16 aircraft and Apache helicopters, all made in the United States, is striking at the unarmed Palestinian people, killing innocent children, women and the aged, is causing the destruction of houses and civil institutions, and is bulldozing and destroying farms.

"At the same time, the Israeli Government is ignoring all calls emanating from the international community for it to cease this savage aggression, which is in flagrant and arrogant violation of the 4th Geneva Convention on the rights of civilian populations under occupation, and of United Nations Security Council resolutions. ”The continuous Israel aggression shows clearly and in a self-evident manner that the Israeli Government is not sincere in its pretended desire for peace, and that it is totally responsible for what results from the aggression in terms of the martyrs and victims, and in terms of the violation of the human rights of the Palestinians and with relation to the endangering of security and stability in the region,” Sheikh Hamdan said. "This aggression will only make the Palestinian people more steadfast in their confrontation with and their resistance to Israeli occupation,” he added.

The Minister went on to say that: "The United Arab Emirates strongly supports the final communiqué issued by the Arab follow-up committee on Saturday, which decided to stop all political communication between the Arab states and the Israeli Government, and to support the Palestinian Intifada (uprising) and the legitimate right of the Palestinians to resist occupation.

The UAE calls also for the implementation of the decisions of the recent Arab summit conference in this regard.” "The political and military support provided by the United States to Israel places upon the United States a major international responsibility and duty to halt the arrogant expression of Israeli military power against the Palestinian people. It is incumbent on the United States, therefore, not to obstruct the efforts being made in the United Nations to put an end to this Israeli aggression and to provide protection urgently for the Palestinian people,” Sheikh Hamdan continued.

"The UAE calls on the members of the United Nations Security Council, in particular the United States, as the major sponsor of the peace process, members of the European Union and the Russian Federation to adopt a responsible and decisive approach and position to stop this barbaric aggression and for an immediate intervention through the provision of an international protection force, to protect the Palestinian people from being subjected to savage attacks from the Israeli occupation forces,” he added.

"The United Arab Emirates also calls for the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories to be ended, in accordance with international resolutions, as this is the only way through which peace and security can be restored to the area,” Sheikh Hamdan concluded. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
