During a meeting for foreign ministers of the Arab League’s member states, Dr. Malki also addressed Arab League Secretary-General Ahmad Abu AL-Gheit, saying that the league should work with all Arab countries “seriously” in order to support the diplomatic efforts led by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to try and end the Israeli occupation.
Dr. Malki stressed that member states should make joint efforts to exert pressure on Israel to implement the anti-settlement UN Security Council Resolution 2334, to withdraw from all Palestinian territory occupied in 1967, and to “enable the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.”.
The Arab summit, that started today, Dr. Malki express that it’s will be “pivotal” for two reasons — the first being that it will take place amidst “ongoing challenges and instabilities in the Arab world and in the region.
The second issue making this year’s summit pivotal, “is the fact that the question of Palestine has not been solved yet, but rather became more complicated due to the arrogance and extremist practices of the right wing Israeli government which has adopted all the attitudes and ideas of Israeli settlers.”
