Israeli settlements must end: UN General Assembly President

Listen /

Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser

Foreign occupation is incompatible with democracy and human rights, particularly the right to self determination according to the President of the General Assembly.

Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser told the Human Rights Council, Monday, in Geneva that the Arab awakening sweeping the region must not divert attention from this obstacle in the face of International peace and stability.

"Rather, efforts should be accelerated to ensure that the Palestinian people freely realize their right to self determination, notably by establishing their independent state, and ensure freedom and dignity for the Syrian people in the Occupied Syrian Golan. There is global consensus on the urgent need for the Israeli settlements to cease."
