UAE backs Palestinians' rights to independent state: Khalifa

posted on 12/08/2003: 527 views



A UAE top official voiced yesterday the UAE's pledge to extend all forms of support for Palestinian people's legitimate rights to establish their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital. Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan highlighted the role of the international community, notably the Quartet committee which comprises the US, Russia, the EU and the UN, in pressuring Israel in order to honour its obligations in regard to the roadmap for peace.



Sheikh Khalifa made his remarks during talks with Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, Abu Mazen, in the presence of Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister. Abu Mazen briefed Sheikh Khalifa on the latest developments on the Palestinian territories, on results of his recent visit to Washington and efforts to implement the roadmap for peace. He showed Sheikh Khalifa through a map the Palestinian areas which Israel confiscated to build what he called the 'apartheid wall'. 'This wall is posing a major stumbling block in the way of achieving peace and implementing the roadmap for peace,' he stressed.



He also hailed the UAE for its continued support for the Palestinian cause. The meeting was attended by Lt. General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Armed Forces Chief of Staff, Major Gen. Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Interior Ministry Under Secretary, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Information and Culture, Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research and Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Civil Aviation Department. On the Palestinian side, it was attended by Dr. Nabil Shath, Palestinian Foreign Minister, Nabil Omr, Palestinian Information Minister and Palestinian ambassador Khalid Malak.
