PNC Palestine Chairmanship of the group of 77 and China has solidified Palestine's international legal identity
The Palestinian National Council considered that President Mahmoud Abbas chairing of the group of 77 and China solidifies Palestine's international legal identity, enhances its status in the international order and is an appreciation to Palestine and its President amongst the countries and people of the world.
The spaeker of the Palestinian National Council, Salim Al-Zanoon, said in a press release on Wednesday that the presidency of the Palestinian state of this group, which includes two-thirds of the world's population, came as a result of the great sacrifices made by the Palestinian people and the fruit of Palestinian diplomacy led by President Abbas.
Mr. Al-Zanoon added, that the group's chairmanship would emphasize the recognition of the right of the Palestinian people to live in an independent state with the city of Jerusalem as its capital, and to promote its demands for full membership in the United Nations.
The National Council asserted that the chairmanship of the Group, which includes 134 countries at this particular time, is a new slap from the international community to the Trump administration, the settler government of Israel led by Netanyahu, and their denial of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to freedom and self-determination living in an independent Palestinian state according to the resolutions of international legitimacy.
He expressed his confidence in the capability of the State of Palestine, its president, diplomats and experts to successfully lead this group and open new horizons for the Palestinian people and the people of this group.
