(MENAFN- Gulf Times) The weekly Cabinet meeting, presided over by HE the Prime Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani, welcomed the final communique of the Extraordinary Organisation of Islamic Co-operation (OIC) summit which was held recently in Istanbul with the participation of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.
After the Cabinet meeting, which was held at the Amiri Diwan premises yesterday morning, HE the Minister of Justice and Acting Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Dr Hassan Lahdan Saqr al- Mohannadi said that Cabinet praised the speech of His Highness the Amir at the opening session of the summit which affirmed Qatar's firm positions in support of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, stressed the need for a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue by establishing an independent state with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital, rejected the practices of the Israeli occupation authorities, and called on the international community to take practical, real and effective steps to protect the Palestinian people.
The Cabinet also praised the efforts of the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan in support of the Palestinian cause, and his role in convening the Extraordinary Islamic Summit and its success in coming out with a unified Islamic position on the grave developments in the occupied Palestinian territories due to the continuation of the brutal Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people and the illegal opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.
The Cabinet underlined that the final communique of the summit expressed the feelings of the Muslims towards the Palestinian cause and its support for the rights of the Palestinian people and their demand for international protection, as well as their adherence to Al-Quds Al-Sharif as the eternal capital of Palestine, and that the opening of the US embassy does not alter the legal status of the occupied city or legitimises its illegal annexation by Israel.
