Speaking at the special session of the international donor group for Palestine in Brussels today, Kuwaitآ's ambassador to the EU, Belgium, NATO and Luxembourg, Jasem Al-Budaiwi urged the commitment of the international community to the historical, religious and political status of the city of Jerusalem and the need to ensure that it is not compromised by any unilateral actions. Further, he called for the condemnation of Israel's continued violation of resolution 2334 on its illegal and illegal settlement activities. Al-Budaiwi urged the international community to support the activities of UNRWA as one of the most important United Nations agencies serving some 6 million Palestine refugees, to move away from any "politicization" of its activities and to preserve the nature of its humanitarian activities.
