Kuwait Calls For Rebuilding Communications Sector In Gaza

(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) VIENNA, June 11 (KUNA) -- Kuwait affirmed on Tuesday its support for the rights of the Palestinian people to rebuild the communications sector in Gaza after the massive destruction resulting from the barbaric war of Israeli occupying forces.
This came in a speech by the Permanent Representative to the United Nations Office and international organizations in Geneva, Ambassador Nasser Al-Hein, before the International telecommunication Union conference currently being held in Geneva.
Al-Hein said that the Palestinians' right to access modern communications technology is a basic human right, rooted in the principles of the United Nations Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, especially in Article 19 of it, which affirms the right of every individual to freedom of opinion and expression, and searching for, receiving and transmitting information through any media, regardless of borders.
He stressed that no party can isolate an entire people and deny the violation of universal human rights principles, and therefore everyone must join hands to ensure that the Palestinian people are able to rebuild what was destroyed by the occupation, and to guarantee their right to communicate and engage in the global information society.
At the end of his speech, the Kuwaiti Ambassador concluded by saying that moral and humanitarian responsibility requires everyone to stand by the Palestinian people in their right to a decent life and free communication, calling on the union to adopt the new draft resolution and provide urgent support to Palestine to rebuild its communications sector.
