Who thinks that peace can prevail in Middle East without the Palestinian people enjoying their full legitimate rights, they are wrong. This was stated by the president of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA), Mahmoud Abbas, at the 78th session of the UN General Assembly underway in New York. The statements come as indirect talks are underway between Israel and Saudi Arabia to start diplomatic relations. One of the conditions posed by Riyadh concerns the creation of a Palestinian state. “The effects of the Nakba continue due to the Israeli occupation which violates the principles of international law. Thirty years after the Oslo Accords, we have confidence that the UN can enforce the resolutions, with East Jerusalem as the capital and with the creation of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders." Abbas said. The president of the PA added: "The racist far-right Israeli government continues to intimidate our population and continues not to hand over the bodies of the martyrs." After making this statement, a representative of Israel left her seat. Abbas added that "the occupation government continues to attack religious sites which, according to international legitimacy, are for the exclusive use of Muslim faithful."
In his speech at the Glass Palace, Abbas he asked himself “why remain silent in the face of these violations? Why are there double standards when it comes to Israel? Isn't it time to talk about this topic? We ask for apologies and compensation." Citing “the stalling of the (Middle East) peace process,” Abbas asked the United Nations and the secretary general of United Nations to organize “an international peace conference and anyone who wants to achieve peace in the Middle East can participate”. This international conference “perhaps will be the last opportunity to create two states”. “I ask the UN to act to protect the population from the continued aggression of terrorist settlers and the occupation military. The current situation is intolerable,” she said.
