The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) stressed the need to abide by the resolutions of international legitimacy, including those related to the establishment of a Palestinian state on the borders of June 4, 1967, in accordance with the two-state solution.
This was stated in the report of the Middle East Committee, which was adopted before the ruling council of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in Doha, which stressed the need to comply with UN Security Council Resolution 2334 on settlements and UN General Assembly Resolution number 194 on the Palestinian refugee issue, and also International resolutions relevant to UNRWA and the need to continue its work.
The report also noted that Israel is holding Palestinian tax funds, contrary to agreements signed between the two parties, and international laws.
The report of the Committee also included the testimonies of two children, Hanan Abu Asaba and Ahmad Bakr, 15, from the UNRWA Student Parliament, who presented to the Middle East Committee the suffering of Palestinian refugees at home and abroad and the role of UNRWA which was founded under a resolution by the United Nations General Assembly to implement direct relief and employment programs for Palestinian refugees who have been forcibly displaced from their homeland since 1948.
In their presentation, the children explained that the Agency’s services, especially education, were threatened by the Agency’s financial crisis and stressed the importance of ensuring the safe education of Palestinian refugees, calling upon the IPU to support their rights and to support UNRWA.
On the other hand, in a statement issued by its president at the end of its 140th session, the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) condemned the American decision to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan and considered it a violation of UN Security Council Resolution 497 on the Syrian Golan.
