The members of the Ministerial Committee stressed the importance of embodying the independent, sovereign Palestinian state along the lines of June 4, 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and the importance of international recognition of the Palestinian state, especially the permanent members of the Security Council, so that the Palestinian people can achieve their legitimate rights and also comprehensive just peace can prevail.
