Tunisia reiterates support for Palestinians

Tunis, Tunisia has reiterated its principle stance in support of the just Palestinian cause, stressing its constant support for the Palestinian people in their perpetual struggle to recover their legitimate rights, notably the right to establish an independent State with Al Quds Al-Sharif (Jerusalem) as its capital.

In a statement issued today marking the 31st anniversary of the proclamation of the Palestinian State, and carried by the Tunisian news agency (Agence Tunis Afrique Press, TAP), the Tunisian Foreign Affairs Ministry pointed out that Tunisia will undertake to efficiently carry on the regional and international efforts to resume a concrete peace process that will put an end to the suffering of the Palestinian people and help them regain their rights.

Tunisia constantly denounces the aggressions of the Israeli occupation, as well as the colonisation policy of the Palestinian territories, which consecrates the policy of fait accompli, in violation of international law and peace process agreements, according to the statement, the statement said.

In this regard, Tunisia urges the UN Security Council and the international parties to shoulder their responsibilities to end the systematic attacks of the Israeli occupation forces.

It is also a question of denouncing the enemy’s schemes, which tend to falsify the historical and legal truths of Al-Quds and the rest of the occupied territories, targeting Islamic and Christian places of worship as well as the construction of settlements in blatant violation of the UN decisions and resolutions, the Tunisian Foreign Ministry added.
