Arab Envoys in Kenya Unite to Declare Support for Palestinian Rights

Arab Ambassadors accredited in Kenya have joined forces to advocate for the rights and well-being of the Palestinian people in a show of unwavering solidarity. This collective action took place at the Embassy of the State of Palestine in Nairobi and included envoys representing various Arab nations. Together, they issued a joint declaration to underscore their commitment to the Palestinian cause and called for urgent international intervention to address the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The gathering emphasized the paramount importance of safeguarding the rights of Palestinians, especially their right to self-determination and the establishment of an independent and sovereign state within the pre-June 4, 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its recognized capital.

The Arab Ambassadors stressed the need for a just and comprehensive lasting peace and endorsed the two-state solution as the most strategically sound path to ensure regional stability and the well-being of all nations and inhabitants. They expressed profound concern about the escalating violence and the catastrophic consequences it could bring if not addressed.

This declaration aligns with Resolution No. 8987 issued by the Council of the League of Arab States during an extraordinary ministerial-level meeting convened to address Israeli aggression and seek peace and security in the region.

The declaration outlines several key principles, including an immediate cessation of the conflict, calling for an immediate halt to Israeli military actions in the Gaza Strip and its surrounding areas. The Ambassadors have urged all parties involved to exercise restraint and have highlighted the humanitarian and security risks of prolonged conflict.

The Ambassadors strongly condemned ongoing violations endured by Palestinians under Israeli occupation, particularly recent acts of aggression and rights infringements. They also called for the lifting of the Gaza Siege to ensure unimpeded access for humanitarian aid, food, and fuel, emphasizing the essential role of international organizations, particularly UNRWA, in providing critical support during this critical period.

Additionally, the Ambassadors advocated for the pursuit of a Just Peace, emphasizing the establishment of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, coexisting peacefully with Israel in accordance with international legitimacy and the Arab Peace Initiative.

They also called for a revival of the Peace Process, stressing the need for substantive negotiations between the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and Israel and the potential repercussions of a lack of genuine political prospects for peace.

This unified declaration underscores the unswerving support of the Arab diplomatic community for the Palestinian cause and the compelling need for global action to address the ongoing crisis in the region. It serves as a testament to the dedication of Arab nations to seek a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on universally recognized principles and agreements.
