The Presidency of Assembly of the Representatives of the People of Tunisia (PARPT) rejects the normalization of diplomatic relations between UAE and Israel, and regards the agreement as an infringement of the rights of the Palestinian people. The agreement is a flagrant threat to Arab and Islamic consensus at the popular level.
PARPT reiterated, in a statement on Monday, “its affirmation of the principled position of the Arab and Islamic world in support of the Palestinian cause and its advocates for freedom; it reiterated its rejection of colonialism, settlement and the violation of Palestinian state sovereignty and undermining the right to self-determination.”
PARPT condemned “the Emirati normalization-, especially in the context of ongoing aggression against the Palestinian people, the Zionist entity’s policy of expansion and annexation of land, which will result in a new geographic and demographic reality that threatens the Palestinian existence.”
The Tunisian parliament presidency stressed its “absolute solidarity and fraternal relations with the Palestinian people in liberating their land and establishing their independent state, with Al-Quds as its capital.”
It called on “the Arab Parliament, the Union of Arab Parliaments, regional and international parliaments, supporters of freedom to condemn the agreement and to support the cause of the Palestinian people in pursuit of their rights to self detrmination.”
The agreement on Emirati-Israeli normalization was met with widespread Arab popular rejection, and Palestinian condemnation by the factions and the leadership, which considered it a “betrayal by the Emirates of Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa (mosque) and the Palestinian cause.”
