Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra has called on the international community to uphold its responsibilities towards the Palestinian people. He also asked that it stops stalling in the realisation of a fair and comprehensive agreement for the Palestine-Israel conflict and stop managing the conflict rather than ending it.
Lamamra made his comments during a speech at the festival arranged by the Algerian foreign ministry to mark the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The festival was held at the ministry in Algiers and was attended by diplomats, political leaders and representatives, and a large number of Palestinians based in Algeria.
The foreign minister stressed the need for the international community to abandon a policy of double standards, and bear its historical and legal responsibilities to restore justice to the Palestinians. He added that the world must put pressure on the Israeli occupation to adhere completely to international law.
PLO Executive Committee member Ahmed Majdalani presented details of the current developments in occupied Palestine and the ongoing popular uprising in the face of the Israelis’ racist and discriminatory measures in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
