Dhaka calls for sustained efforts to find comprehensive solution to Palestine issue
Bangladesh has urged all key actors to remain firm in their efforts to pursue a comprehensive solution to the Palestine issue. State Minister for Foreign Affairs, M Shahriar Alam, made the call seeking a solution consistent with the relevant UN Security Council Resolution, and in Accordance with the Arab peace Initiative, The Quartet Roadmap, and the principle of land for peace. "We also add our voice to the need for ensuring enhanced, predictable, and sustainable funding for UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) in order for it to effectively carry out its humanitarian mandate in support of the Palestine refugees," said Shahriar Alam. In making a statement on Palestine at the NAM Ministerial Committee on Palestine in Baku, Azerbaijan, on Thursday, the State Minister said Bangladesh looks forward to reviewing the situation further when Bangladesh hosts the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers meeting in Dhaka on May 5-6. Under the guidance of Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, Shahriar Alam said the government and people of Bangladesh remain steadfast in their support for the just and legitimate struggle of the Palestinian people for their inalienable rights. He talked about their right to self-determination and the establishment of an independent, viable, contiguous, and sovereign Palestine State, with East Jerusalem as its capital in the framework of a two-state solution. "Bangladesh acknowledges the developments with political unity and reconciliation in Palestine, which we consider to be a step in the right direction," said Shahriar Alam. He said the council has the moral obligation to prevail upon Israel to immediately halt is illegal settlements in the occupied Palestine territories and lift the blockade in the Gaza strip. The council has the moral obligation to put an end to all forms of occupation. Immediate priority must be given to ensuring international protection for Palestine people suffering for decades from Israel's policy of collective punishment, he added.
