The PNC: There is no legitimacy for any declaration or recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel the occupying state
The Palestinian National Council (PNC) confirmed that there is no legitimacy for any declaration or recognition of occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Israel the occupying state, from any side, whether statements made by the President of Honduras, the Prime Minister of Romania, or the statements of Czech President and opening of a commercial office of his country in Jerusalem the occupied city.
PNC said in a statement issued on Monday that these statements and actions violated international resolutions, including 476 and 478, which called on all countries to refrain from establishing diplomatic missions in the city of Jerusalem, which will be considered an explicit declaration of bias towards Israel the hostile and occupying state. This act constitute a serious threat to international peace and security, a violation of international law governing relations between States, and a irresponsible denial of the rights of our people, which are guaranteed, protected and inalienable.
PNC appealed to the parliamentary unions to address these breaches of international law and resolutions of international legitimacy, and the regulations of the international legitimacy bodies represented by the United Nations and its affiliated organizations.
PNC called upon the world and its relevant institutions to defend the resolutions of international legitimacy that guaranteed the rights of Palestinian people of self-determination, return to their homeland and to establish their state on the borders of June 4, 1967 with Jerusalem as its capital. PNC is calling for the activation of the international accountability tools against Israel and its supporters for non-compliance with international law.
PNC affirmed that those who recognize occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Israeli, the occupying state, are considered partners and protectors of this colonial occupation, and violate the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 and the successive resolutions of international legitimacy, including Security Council resolution 2334 of 2016.
PNC stressed that the State of Palestine has no capital other than the city of Jerusalem, the destination of our national project, which we will defend and sacrifice for it.
