After the voting process, Permanent Observer of Palestine to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour gave a speech to show his gratitude and thanks to the member countries of the UN for their initial stand and their votes in favor of the Palestinian Resolutions that show their support to the Palestinian Cause.

Mansour added that the international community represented by the United Nations's protection of international law is a source of comfort and support to the Palestinian people that will help them in their continuing journey of resisting and striving to maintain their inalienable rights and bringing an end to the Israeli occupation which will liberate the State of Palestine and its capitol, Jerusalem and fulfill the two-state solution.

The ambassador also affirmed the importance of the resolutions approved by the UN concerning Palestine saying that what affects the credibility of the United Nations is not ,as some claim, the adoption of these resolutions but the non existence of a necessary political will to force Israel to show respect to these resolutions and apply it.
