Twenty-nine years ago, the Palestine National Council recognized Israel's existence on 78% percent of our historic homeland, and in 1993 the Palestine Liberation Organization reaffirmed its recognition of the State of Israel. This historic compromise is an evidence of our commitment to achieving a genuine and lasting peace with Israel on the basis of ending its belligerent military occupation to establish our independent, sovereign and contiguous State on the internationally -recognized 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Over the past nine months, the Occupying Power has intensified its fierce colonial campaign against the land and people of Palestine as the occupation and siege on Gaza has entered its 10th year. The illegal Israeli annexation of Palestinian lands and settlement construction have violently continued to deny the rights of Palestine as a sovereign, contiguous, and independent State on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

United Nations General Assembly

20 September 2017


Mr. President of the United Nations General Assembly,

 Mr. Secretary-General of the United Nations,


 Ladies and Gentlemen,

Twenty-four years have passed since the signing of the Oslo Accords, an interim agreement that set a five year period for bringing an end to the Israeli occupation, granting hope to the Palestinian people that they would soon achieve independence within their State and achieve peace between Palestinians and Israelis. What is left of this hope today?

August 29, 2017   

We had a positive meeting where we were able to brief the Secretary General on the latest political developments, our position for a just and lasting peace in the region, as well as on the daily Israeli crimes and violations, including its colonial-settlement enterprise that is not only an obstacle but destroys every possibility for peace. On this point, we emphasized the importance of implementing UNSC Resolution 2334, approved last December, on the illegality of the Israeli settlement enterprise in Occupied Palestine.
