Tunisia participates Friday in Istanbul in the extraordinary Islamic Summit on Palestine.
President Beji Caid Essebsi on Thursday morning entrusted Minister of Foreign Affairs, Khemaïes Jhinaoui with representing Tunisia at the Summit convened by Turkey to examine dangerous developments in the Palestinian territories.
According to a statement released Thursday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the summit will focus on the dangerous escalation that accompanied the transfer of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Al-Quds, which resulted in dozens of martyrs and hundreds of wounded.
The latest developments in Gaza coincide with the commemoration of the Nakba’s 70th anniversary, the establishment of the Israeli state, and the transfer of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Al-Quds.
Convened by Turkish President Recep Tayyib Erdogan, President-in-Office of the summit of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), this summit is an opportunity to reaffirm Tunisia’s full solidarity with the brotherly Palestinian people and its commitment to their sides in their fight for the recovery of their legitimate rights, including the establishment of their independent state on their lands with capital Al-Quds Al-Sharif.
This conclave is also an opportunity to reaffirm the commitment to the legal and historical status of Al-Quds in accordance with the resolutions of international legality and relevant conventions.
