Statement by H.E. Dr. Riad Malki, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates of the State of Palestine at the Ministerial meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation

The state of Palestine commends the principled position and unconditional support of the OIC in representing a unified Muslim voice and its shared responsibility towards the Question of Palestine and Al-Quds, and Palestinian people’s inalienable right to self-determination;

Some members voted against something as basic and rudimentary as the Palestinian people’s inalienable right to self-determination;

This is not only in violation of what OIC stands for but more than that, it is a violation of the United Nations Charter, resolutions and values;

The Palestinian people have endured a relentless campaign of viciousness, criminality, and brutality at the hands of the Israeli occupation army and settler militias, who serve as partners in crime to the Israeli system of colonial apartheid;

Israel’s illegal colonial occupation is not limited to blood and tears. Rather;

It is the sum of all measures that this illegal regime has taken and continues to take to ensure its permanent illegal colonization of Palestine, the pillaging of its resources, and persecution;

We insisted on the adoption of resolution 77/400 by the General Assembly requesting an advisory ruling from the ICJ on the legal status of Israel’s occupation and the legal obligations of states towards this reality and Israel’s systemic violations of IL and Palestinian rights;

Palestine calls on the OIC and all Member States to actively support our endeavor at the International Court of Justice;

We reiterate our request that Members engage the international system’s highest Court and buttress the justified case of Palestine before it;

The fact that Israel, the Occupying Power, has been able to get away with all these crimes without consequence or even proper legal qualification is a threat to international peace and security;

It undermines the foundational values of human rights and international law;

The Palestinian people remain determined to uphold their historic, religious, and moral duty to confront injustice with grace and dignity;

We will continue to defend AL-Quds Al-Sharif and Al-Haram Al-Sharif, its crown jewel, against all aggressions;

As we continue marching through this painful path to freedom and justice, we trust that e can continue to count on the invaluable support of the OIC, which has played a crucial role in advancing and protecting Palestinian rights as well as achieving accountability.
