OIC condemns Netanyahu's remarks and welcomes Saudi Arabia's call for emergency meeting at foreign minister level.

Jeddah, September 11, 2019, SPA -- The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has condemned in the strongest terms the intention of the Israeli Prime Minister to "impose Israeli sovereignty on all areas of the Jordan Valley and the northern Dead Sea and settlements in the West Bank if he is re-elected", adding that this dangerous declaration constitutes a new attack on the rights of the Palestinian people, in flagrant violation of the Charter of the United Nations, the principles of the International law and relevant United Nations resolutions, including UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338.

The OIC Secretary General, Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen, said that the OIC will hold an extraordinary meeting at the level of foreign ministers at the request of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to discuss this dangerous Israeli escalation and take urgent political and legal measures to confront this aggressive Israeli position and unify the efforts of Islamic countries through an urgent plan to confront the Israeli declaration and addressing it in every possible way.

The Secretary-General also blamed the Israeli occupation government for the repercussions of this illegal declaration which would undermine any international efforts to achieve a just, lasting and comprehensive peace in accordance with the vision of a two-state solution, while calling on all states and international organizations to reject and condemn this provocative declaration, and to oblige Israel to stop all its unilateral actions, as null and void and has no legal effect under the international law and relevant UN resolutions.

Dr. Al-Othaimeen concluded his statement by affirming the positions of the OIC and its member countries, especially the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the headquarters of the organization and the president of 14th Islamic summit, aimed at achieving the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people in accordance with the resolutions of the international legitimacy and the Arab peace initiative and the establishment of a Palestinian state on the borders of June 4, 1967, with Al-Quds East as its capital.
