Mauritanian President says Palestinian cause top Arab problem

Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz has said that the Palestinian cause will remain the top Arab problem, stressing that any solution to it should maintain the lawful rights of the Palestinian people.

Addressing the 30th session of the Arab Summit, which kicked off on Sunday 31/3/2019, Ould Abdel Aziz reiterated the right of the Palestinian people to establish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

According to the Mauritanian president, achieving comprehensive and permanent peace in the region hinges on a just solution to the Palestinian problem, as well as restoring Syria’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights and Israel’s pullout from Lebanon’s Shebaa Farms.

Speaking of the conflicts in Syria, Libya, Yemen and Somalia, Ould Abdel Aziz said they have lasted for so long and have led to catastrophic consequences in terms of casualties, destroyed infrastructure and displacement of citizens.

He called for supporting regional and international efforts meant to reach peaceful solutions to the conflicts in those countries.
