Kuwait restates position on ending Israel's occupation of Palestine

NEW YORK, Saturday, October 15, 2022 (WAFA) – Kuwait has reaffirmed its support for the ending of the Israeli occupation of all the Palestinian territories and the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination.

In a statement before the Fourth Committee of the General Assembly, the country’s diplomatic attache of the permanent delegation to the UN, Mohammed Al-Sawagh, renewed his country’s firm stance on Palestinians gaining their political rights, including that of self-determination.

According to Kuwait News Agency, Al-Sawagh said that the right to self-determination is stated in the first article of General Assembly Resolution 1514 issued in December 1960 on granting independence to countries and people of Non-Self-Governing Territories.

Al-Sawagh pointed out that this is "the only solution to reach a lasting, comprehensive and just peace in accordance with the relevant Security Council resolutions, the principle of land for peace, the road map and the Arab Peace Initiative."
