GCC Condemns Jewish Nation-State Law

Riyadh, Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) for Arab States Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani has expressed the Council's condemnation of the Israeli Knesset's approval yesterday of the Jewish nation-state bill.

He said that the GCC considered this law a racist contravened international laws, the principles of human rights, the Charter and resolutions of the United Nations and reflected the regime of racism and discrimination against the Palestinian people and the Israeli insistence on obliterating their national identity and depriving them of their legitimate civil and human rights on their occupied homeland.

Dr. Al-Zayani called on the United Nations, UN Security Council, Inter-Parliamentary Union and relevant international organizations to shoulder their political and legal responsibilities to demand Israeli authorities to abide by United Nations resolutions and stop the implementation of this racist law.
