Afrique en ligne | Saturday May 07th Africa news

Palestine has urged Senegal, African countries and the international community to help it put an end to the occupation of its territories by Israel and become a member of the United Nations Organization (UNO), a press release of the Palestine Embassy in Dakar said. The Palestinian Embassy appealed to Senegal, in its capacity as current chair of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and the United Nations Committee for the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.

It also urged Senegal and the ‘governments of sister African countries and the international community to effectively maintain efforts in support of the Palestinian leadership, geared towards putting an end to the arbitrary occupation imposed by Israel on Palestinians and for Palestine to become a full UN member, as a sovereign and independent state.’

According to the release, ‘only such an approach is likely to guarantee the attainment of the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people and help establish lasting peace and peaceful co-existence.’

Expressing satisfaction over ‘the success of the efforts which were deployed and which led to the signing, on Wednesday in Cairo, Egypt, of the national reconciliation accord between Palestinian political groups,’ the Fatah and Hamas, the release added that the accord will help Palestinians to ‘forever turn the Black page of division.

‘This accord has put in place a common governance mechanism through a consensual government, made up of technocrats and independent personalities, whose mission will consist in organizing parliamentary, presidential elections and the election of the National Palestinian Council,’ the release stated, urging that ‘the new government should also devote itself to the reconstruction of the Gaza strip.
