Palestinian Premier Criticizes Opposition of International Report on Palestine


Ramallah, June 13 (QNA) - Palestinian Prime Minister Dr. Mohammad Shtayyeh criticized the opposition of some countries to the recent report issued by the United Nations Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Occupied Palestinian Territory, which is an offshoot of the United Nations Human Rights Council.
During the weekly session of the Palestinian government today, Shtayyeh said that the opposition of some countries to the report is complete bias towards the occupation, adding that it contradicts the principles of human rights and encourages the occupying state to persist in its violations and impunity.
He was also surprised by the election of the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations for the position of Vice-President of the General Assembly, considering this step an attempt to market and legitimize the colonial occupation regime on the land of Palestine.
Shtayyeh said it is illogical for the occupying state to be rewarded for its violations of international humanitarian law, and it should not be rewarded for its crimes, and to whitewash its racist colonial page, nor should it be encouraged to impunity at the expense of Palestinian blood, Palestinian land and the ''legitimate rights of our people." Meanwhile, the Palestinian Prime Minister appreciated the decision of the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions to boycott the occupying state, considering it a racial segregation state. He also welcomed the decision of the Norwegian government to mark settlement goods, and thanked it for this step, which he described as historic and moral. In this regard, he called on all countries to boycott settlement products and fulfill their international obligations in line with international law.
A commission of inquiry emanating from the International Human Rights Council held the Israeli entity responsible for the conflict due to its continued occupation of Palestinian lands. In its report, the commission recommended the need to ensure accountability of the occupation for its violations of international law, to put an end to its impunity, and to oblige it to stop its violations of Palestinian rights.
