Palestinian Ambassador to Iran Salah Zawawi
Palestinian Ambassador to Iran Salah Zawawi says Palestine’s territories must be liberated from Israeli occupation by resorting to all the existing possible means.

“We believe that the land of Palestine should be reclaimed by the Palestinians by any means whether it is diplomatic, political or armed confrontation,” ISNA quoted Zawawi as saying on Friday.

It has been over a century that the Palestinian nation has been fighting against a complicated plot which is the settlement of Jews within the Palestinian territories, the top diplomat said.

The issue of Jews was originally the West’s problem, but instead of resolving the question, the Western powers planned the immigration of Jews to Palestine and created even a more complicated problem for the Palestinian nation, Zawawi added.

The Palestinian ambassador noted that all the Palestinians are in agreement about the formation of an independent Palestinian state with al-Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital, return of the Palestinian refugees to their homeland and cessation of the Jewish settlements in the occupied territories.

In September 2010, Israel resumed the expansion of settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories after a10-month partial freeze, prompting the Palestinian Authority (PA) leaders to break off the US-sponsored talks with Tel-Aviv that had resumed after a lengthy stalemate.

The work on settlements in the occupied East al-Quds (Jerusalem) has drawn international criticism. Israel, however, remains defiant in the face of calls to halt its illegal settlement activities.

Zawawi deplored the fact that the Western countries, which played the key role in sending the Jews to the Palestinian territories, have so far failed to adopt a positive stance towards the issue of Palestine.

On September 23, acting Palestinian Authority (PA) Chief Mahmoud Abbas presented UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon with the statehood proposal during the UN General Assembly’s annual session in New York.

The PA has reportedly secured the support of ten of the UNSC’s membership with India, Nigeria, Gabon, and Bosnia most recently siding with the Palestinians on the issue.

However, the US, among the Security Council’s five permanent members, which have veto powers, has vowed to thwart the bid.
