Sheikh Tamim: No peace without Palestinians exercising their rights

Days of Palestine -

Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said Tuesday that the peace in the Middle East could not be achieved without enabling the Palestinian people to exercise their legitimate rights.

Addressing the Shura Council, Sheikh Tamim emphasized that among the Palestinian rights is “the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with east Jerusalem as its capital, as stated by the resolutions of the international legitimacy and the Arab peace initiative.”

He also described the steps taken by some regional countries to normalize their relations with Israel without a just solution to the Palestinian question as “a mere illusion.”
