The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), in a statement on Wednesday, said that despite the attempt to hinder the magnitude of the¬†diplomatic, political, and moral crisis facing the United¬†States and Israel, after the declaration of President¬†Donald Trump on Jerusalem, the transfer of the¬†Embassy of his country to it, and Washington‚Äôs¬†unlimited support to the occupation and its crimes and¬†serious violations of international law, international¬†legitimacy, and resolutions, the international community declared firm positions against Trump‚Äôs¬†Declaration and the occupation‚Äôs crimes practiced¬†against defenseless people, especially the massacre¬†committed by the occupation soldiers against the¬†unarmed participants in the Right of Return marches in¬†the Gaza Strip, which reflected an international¬†consensus on the justice of the Palestinian cause, the¬†rejection of Trump‚Äôs Declaration, the transfer of the¬†embassy, and the condemnations and criticism of the¬†occupation authorities practices and violations ,which¬†is evident in the speeches and positions of 14 countries¬†in the Security Council, accusing the Security Council‚Äôs¬†position regarding the US veto.
‚ÄúThis is in addition to¬†the practical diplomatic steps taken by many countries¬†in the world to express their stances, as some of them¬†withdrew their ambassadors and others chose to¬†summon their ambassadors from the occupying state,¬†furthermore, several countries publicly demanded the¬†formation of a fair and transparent commission of¬†inquiry for the crimes of occupation,and the statements¬†of condemnations issued in the name of senior officials¬†in many countries,‚ÄĚ MOFA added, according to the PNN.
The Ministry said that it highly appreciates and thanks all states that stood by the Palestinian people at this critical and¬†delicate stage, as it affirms that this international¬†consensus would not have been possible without the¬†great efforts of President Mahmoud Abbas and the¬†Palestinian diplomacy.
The entire world is united in¬†condemning the crimes of the occupation. The entire¬†world, in its rejection of Trump‚Äôs Declaration and the¬†transfer of the embassy, stated that they stand in¬†solidarity with the Palestinian people and with the¬†martyrs and wounded Palestinians who have fallen, in¬†clear reference to the failure of the efforts of¬† the United¬†States, Israel, and their allies to exclude the Palestinian¬†conflict from the center of international attention and¬†the permanent agenda of the international community, it added.
