Dr.Erekat condemns the illegal opening of Paraguayan Embassy in Jerusalem

We have witnessed today how the Paraguayan president is an irresponsible political leader by defying international law and the achievement of a just and lasting peace in the Middle East. By opening its embassy in Jerusalem,  Paraguay is violating UNSC Resolution 478 as well as the very dignity of the peoples of Latin America that have struggled for freedom and justice against domination and oppression. 

Moving an embassy to Jerusalem is a widely rejected step, condemned by the United Nations, the European Union, the Arab League, the Organization of the Islamic Conference, the Holy See as well as by the local churches of Jerusalem and the whole of Palestine.

We are already in contact with several allies to advance with the necessary diplomatic steps against the recent illegal moving of the embassies of Paraguay, Guatemala, and the United States, to Jerusalem. We particularly call upon Arab countries that host diplomatic missions of these countries to implement the previous resolutions of the Arab League of 1980, 1990 and 2000 to "severing all ties with states that transfer their embassies to Jerusalem or recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel."

Press Statement

Today, the US administration is acting on its arrogance of power and disdain for Palestinian rights, thus reaffirming that it is now part of the problem, not the solution. As the Palestinian people commemorate seventy years since the onset of their Nakba (Catastrophe) of dispossession, denial, and injustice, the US Administration added insult to injury in Jerusalem by defying international law and rejecting UN Security Council resolutions relevant to Palestinian rights, especially in Jerusalem.

 “One the eve of the seventieth anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba (“catastrophe”), a grave historical injustice that continues today, the U.S. will officially relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem, reneging on longstanding American commitments and policies and violating the most basic requisites of justice and legality.
