Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Dr. Riad Malki praised the principled and steadfast Arab positions in support of the Palestinian people, their case, and just and legitimate national rights, rejecting the projects and conspiracies aimed at undermining and liquidating the main Arab case. Dr. Malki Prime Minister applauded the stances of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, under the leadership of His Majesty King Abdullah II, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, under the leadership of His Majesty King Salman bin Abdulaziz, and the Arab countries and their leaders, in support of the Palestinian position in all forums and events, especially at this sensitive stage experienced by our people. Minister Malki added that these Arab positions reaffirm the importance of the Arab role committed to the resolutions of the various Arab summits in the face of all schemes aimed at prolonging the occupation and marginalizing the Palestinian cause.
The minister Malki continued: These honorable positions are clear evidence of the Israeli-American lies and claims regarding the Arab position on the Palestinian issue and an attempt to create a vacuum in the unified Arab positions towards the Palestinian cause which is considered the central Arab issue. Dr. Malki added that the Egyptian position expressed by Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri rejecting the proposals that diminish the Arab initiative as an equitable solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict, as well as the Jordanian position expressed repeatedly by Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi, declaring Jordan’s adherence to the two-state solution and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, in addition to the Saudi position expressed by Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, asserting that the Palestinian state established on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital is an Arab constant position confirming that the deal of the century does not concern Arabs, as we either want a just Solution or no solution at all. The Minister Malki confirmed that the American bias proposal to the occupation is an Israeli “recipe” aimed at burying the Palestinian issue to remove it from the ladder of regional and international interests.
The Minister stressed that the solid Arab positions reveal the scope of the American-Israeli conspiracy; which is secretly woven under the so-called (deal of the century), and the fact that it is an attempt to legitimize the occupation through excluding the final status negotiated issues one after another to drop them from the negotiations table, emphasizing the inevitability of the failure of what Washington is trying to promote to liquidate the Palestinian cause.
