Foreign Minister: Palestine needs real actions
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 11/Trend S.Agayeva /
Palestine does not need the political support, it needs practical actions, and Jerusalem needs financial support, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Al-Maliki said in Baku at the International Donors' Conference on financing the strategic sectoral development plan of the city of Quds on Tuesday.
According to minister, Al-Quds [East Jerusalem] today faced with major problems that are artificially created by Israel.
"Israel violates the principles of international law, the occupation of Palestinian land is contrary to all international principles," he added.
According to him, the unity of the Palestinian land is under threat.
"East Al-Quds is still under occupation, the Israeli government illegally attracts foreign companies to work in the occupied Palestinian territories," he said.
"Today Palestine is under occupation, and the world is silent about it, but this should not be like that," Palestinian Foreign Minister said.
On Tuesday, Baku is hosting the founding conference of the Islamic Financial Security Network for aid to the Palestinian state and a donor conference for supporting the development of the city of Al-Quds.
The conference is attended by representatives of several international organizations, including the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), ISESCO, the Gulf Cooperation Council, the Islamic Solidarity Fund for Development, and the Islamic Development Bank. The event is also attended by representatives of the OIC member countries: foreign ministers, officials of foreign offices as well as heads and members of diplomatic missions accredited in Baku.
