Saudi Arabia regrets Palestine’s unsuccessful bid to join the UN.

DUBAI: Saudi Arabia conveyed regret that a resolution recognizing Palestine’s full membership in the UN had not been adopted by the UN Security Council.

“Failure to adopt the resolution allows the Israeli occupation to continue its violations of international law without deterrence and will not bring the desired peace closer,” the Kingdom said in an official statement posted on social media platform X by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The ministry restated the Kingdom’s demand that the international community take accountability for putting an end to the Israeli occupation’s attacks on Gaza’s civilian population.

In line with the Arab Peace Initiative and pertinent international resolutions, the Kingdom also reiterated its support for the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination and the establishment of a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Jordan also conveyed its “deep sorrow” over the US veto power preventing the Security Council from passing a resolution that would have admitted Palestine as a full member of the UN.

According to ministry spokesman Sufian Qudah, “recognizing the state of Palestine and its full membership is a necessary step to impose a just peace that ends the occupation, ends the conflict, and fulfills the right of all the peoples of the region to live in security and stability.”

In order to achieve regional peace and security, Jordan insists that all countries recognize the State of Palestine according to the borders of June 4, 1967, with East Jerusalem serving as its capital.
