Qatar's Foreign Affairs minister supports UN resolution concerning Israel, Palestine

Qatar’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani recently told Qatar News Agency that the state welcomes the resolution of the UN Security Council against Israel’s settlement  in Palestine.

Al-Thani noted that he hopes the resolution is a step forward in achieving a just and comprehensive peace for the Palestinian people, and one that contributes to peace and security in the region.
 
Al-Thani also mentioned that the construction of settlements in occupied Palestinian territories contradicts international law, particularly the Fourth Geneva Convention. He noted that the State of Qatar has been and will continue to remain supportive of the Palestinian cause.
 
"Regardless of the challenges that surround our Arab region, but that will not stop us from supporting the Palestinian people and stand by them in their struggle for the defense of their land and its people and their sanctities,” Al-Thani said.
