Palestine criticizes selectivity of the Security Council

Ramallah, Sep 29 (Prensa Latina) The Palestinian government criticized the UN Security Council for abandoning its responsibilities to protect the population of the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the face of the wave of Israeli attacks.

The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement that this body does not make ‘real efforts to revive the peace process’.

The text denounced the institution’s double standards in prioritizing other conflicts, which undermines its credibility.

It also urged in a statement the international community to stop the escalation of violence by the Israeli army in the occupied West Bank, amid press reports of an imminent large-scale military operation.

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry blamed Tel Aviv for the increase in clashes in the West Bank, which it considered to be the result of Israel’s continued aggression.

In his speech last week at the UN, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas criticized the selectivity of the Security Council in implementing its resolutions.

It is not acceptable that its resolutions only apply to some countries, if that body does not fulfill its tasks we will resort to the General Assembly of the world forum, he warned.

He also condemned the unlimited support of the United States to the Israeli aggressions.

It is sad to observe how the White House threatens to use its veto power in the Security Council to prevent our legitimate right to join the UN as a full state, he stressed.

‘What prevents them from recognizing the State of Palestine and accepting its full membership in the United Nations (…) Why are double standards being exercised against us?” he asked.
