NEW YORK, September 24, 2009 (WAFA)- President Mahmoud Abbas said, today, “Let this celebration of the UNRWA’s 60th anniversary be a cry out for the world to move and resolve the longest harshest refugee problem in our time.”
He added at the UNRWA’s 60th Anniversary that the time has come to accomplish peace and justice, and allow all peoples, including Palestinian refugees to live in dignity, prosperity and security. The time has come to end the Israeli colonial occupation of our land, and for our people to enjoy peace and freedom, and make use of its possibilities and capabilities to build its state and the future of its children.
On this occasion, the President reiterated that the Israel’s security is linked to our independence and security, and that the continuity of the occupation and the perpetuity of disaster do not bring security to anyone.
The president called to accelerate the peace process, based on its stable references, to end the Israeli occupation of the Arab and Palestinian territories occupied in 1967, to reach the two-state solution, accomplish peace and find a just solution to the cause of Palestinian refugees on the basis of UN Resolution 194.
