Cuba defends pre-1967 Palestinian borders
Havana, Jun 30 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez defended the establishment of the State of Palestine with its pre-1967 borders as the only possible solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
From June 5th to June 10th, 1967, Israel occupied the Sinai Peninsula, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, East Jerusalem (including the Old City), and the Golan Heights, in what was called the Six Day War.
'Cuba reiterates its rejection of the Israeli plans to annex the Palestinian territories in the West Bank that would increase the risks of conflict in the region,' Rodríguez wrote on his Twitter account.
The request by the Cuban Foreign Ministry coincides with a letter from more than a thousand Palestinian personalities calling for world support against Israel's annexation plans.
The implementation of said plan would constitute a serious violation of the principles of international law, and would also extinguish the possibility of reaching an agreement between the two parties, which will lead to a prolongation of the confrontation, the results of which could be catastrophic, the signatories denounced.
They also condemned the controversial 'Deal of the Century' presented last January by US President Donald Trump.
Said proposal would grant Palestinians limited autonomy within a discontinuous homeland, additionally leaving the prized Jordan Valley in the hands of Tel Aviv and declaring Jerusalem, claimed by both parties, as the capital of Israel.
