KSA Calls for International Investigation into Gaza Events 2 Geneva

Ambassador Dr. Al-Wasel added in the Kingdom's speech that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has clearly expressed its rejection of the decision made by the US administration to move its embassy to Jerusalem and that this step represents a great bias against the historical and permanent rights of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem, which were guaranteed by the relevant international resolutions and have been recognized and supported by the international community.

He stressed that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia warned of the serious consequences of such an unjustifiable move to provoke the feelings of Muslims around the world, affirming the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and the establishment of an independent State with Jerusalem as its capital.

He also called on all Member States of the Human Rights Council to adopt by consensus the resolution before the Council calling for the formation of an international commission to investigate into Israeli violations.
