MALAYSIA STRONGLY CONDEMNS

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU’S PLAN TO ANNEX PARTS OF THE WEST BANK

 

Malaysia strongly condemns the latest statement by Benjamin Netanyahu reaffirming the Israeli government’s plan to annex parts of the Occupied Palestinian Territory of West Bank. The irresponsible statement will undermine any effort and chance for a lasting solution and peace in the Middle East.

 

The Israeli move clearly violates international law, the Geneva Conventions and United Nations resolutions, including those of the United Nations Security Council. This is indeed a dangerous development that deserves the utmost attention of the international community. The West Bank, including East Jerusalem is the internationally recognized Palestinian territory, which Israel has illegally occupied for many decades now.

 

Malaysia urges the international community, in particular the United Nations Security Council to respond unequivocally to the latest blatant disrespect shown by Israel towards the international rule of law.
