PNC welcomes the stand of 130 British House of Commons members, rejecting the Israeli settlement annexation project
Palestine National Council (PNC) welcomed the stand of 130 British House of Commons members who demanded to impose sanctions on Israel, if it will implement the plan to annex parts of the occupied Palestinian territories, and considering it a dangerous precedent in international relations.
In a press statement issued by PNC Speaker, Mr. Saleem Al-Za’anoon, PNC appreciated the courageous stand of these members, who refused the Israeli violation of resolutions of international legitimacy and law of all its parts, which prohibit the annexation and settlement of occupied lands, as what Israel is committing now.
PNC urged the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) and all parliaments in the world to declare its stand of rejecting the policy of annexation and settlement, which the new Israeli coalition government intends to implement, and urges to follow the example of British House of Commons members to protect the principles of international justice, and confront the policy of arrogance and challenging of international law and decisions, which vow of more instability, deterioration of security and destruction of any future opportunities for peace in the region on the basis of ending the Israeli occupation and implementing the two-state solution which is internationally agreed upon and protected by United Nations resolutions.
Friday evening, 130 British House of Commons members from various British parties had sent a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, asking to impose economic sanctions on Israel, in the case that it annexed lands in the West Bank/Palestine.
It counts to mention that this letter was signed by former ministers from the Conservative Party, Lord Patten former President of the Conservative Party, and Mrs. Andrew Mitchell, the former Minister of International Development.
