Ashrawi Deplores US Sole Negative Vote at UNESCO


WAFA NEWS AGENCY MARCH 6 2012

RAMALLAH, March 6, 2012 (WAFA) – PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi Tuesday deplored the United States sole negative vote cast at five resolutions adopted by UNESCO Executive Board.

“It is reprehensible that out of 58 countries, the United States alone cast negative votes and managed to isolate itself by demonstrating yet again unquestioning support for the Israeli occupation,” said Ashrawi in a statement issued by her office.

Ashrawi thanked the UNCESO Executive Board for adopting five resolutions on Monday in support of Palestine.

“The Palestinian people have an inalienable right to sovereignty and freedom,” she said. “This support reaffirms the international community’s commitment to the achievement of the universal principles of justice and humanity and the rights guaranteed to all peoples of the world.”

Ashrawi said that “rather than holding its closest ally accountable, the United States continues to subvert all efforts at achieving a just peace, and presents itself as complicit in Israel’s persistent violations of international law and Palestinian rights.”
