"Foreign Affairs and expatriate" welcomes the reduction of the Republic of South Africa's diplomatic representation to "Israel"
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and expatriates welcomes the decision of the friendly Republic of South Africa to reduce the level of its diplomatic representation to Israel from an embassy level to a liaison office without qualification.
The Ministry stresses the importance of this step in support of the cause and the Palestinian people in strengthening their steadfastness and standing by their side in the fight against the racist regime (apartheid) that the people of the friendly Republic of South Africa have suffered, and this step reflects the nobility of the Palestinian-South African relations, and shows The historic solidarity of the Republic of South Africa with the issues of peoples, foremost of which is the just cause of the Palestinian people, this position is reminiscent of the militant and combative history that connects Palestine with the Republic of South Africa.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and expatriates values the position of the ruling African National Congress (ANC), which serves regional and international peace and security, stands up, advocates and supports just causes around the world, especially the Palestinian question, and considers this to be a response to the "Israeli" escalation. The American arrogance against the rights and leadership of the Palestinian people is that this resolution will send a clear message to "Israel" that there is a price to pay for its human rights violations and violations of international law, and that the free world will address these violations.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and expatriates calls on all parties, governments and the free world to follow the example of the Republic of South Africa in the face of the fierce Israeli onslaught against the Palestinian people in an attempt to obliterate their rights and to act to disregard all international charters and laws issued by the international community.
In the context, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and expatriates calls on the international community and the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention to take urgent action to confront Israel and compel it to comply with the desire of the international community and the resolutions of international legitimacy.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and expatriates emphasizes the firm position of the state of Palestine along with the South African people and its leadership, and the important role played by the Republic of South Africa at the local, regional and international levels.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and expatriates expresses its deep gratitude and appreciation to the Republic of South Africa for its leadership, government and people, the ANC and all parties supporting the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, and to building their independent state on the borders of the fourth June 1967 and its eternal capital of Jerusalem Sheriff.
