The Maldives welcomes the recent Resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council on Palestine and Syria


During the quarterly debate of the United Nations Security Council on the Middle East which was held today, the Maldives has welcomed the adoption of Resolution 2334, which reaffirms the illegality of Israeli settlements in the occupied territory of Palestine, and calls upon states to distinguish in their relevant dealings, between the territory of the State of Israel and the territories occupied since 1967.

H.E. Mr. Ahmed Sareer, the Permanent Representative of the Maldives to the United Nations stated that this resolution was a demonstration of international political support for bringing an end to illegal Israeli settlements, and reiterated the call for a two state solution recognizing the sovereign and independent State of Palestine, based on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The Maldives also welcomed Resolutions 2328, 2332 and 2336, which address the humanitarian crisis in Syria, and affirmed the commitment of the Maldives to take action in the Council and Assembly to address and resolve this grave crisis of our time.

Additionally, the Maldives called upon Member States to urgently implement these resolutions in order to maintain the credibility of the United Nations, and welcomed initiatives by Member States for this purpose.

In addition to over 40 Member States, the Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process and Personal Representative of the Secretary General, as well as the Vice-Chairman of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People participated in the open debate.
