The Speaker of the Arab Parliament (AP), Adel bin Abdulrahman Al-Asoumi, confirmed that the AP will continue its diplomatic efforts at international forums to support the Palestinian cause.
During the meeting with the Palestinian Minister of Women’s Affairs, Mona Al-Khalili, at the headquarters of the AP Secretariat General in Cairo, Al-Asomi also affirmed plans to continue communicating with regional and international parliaments and inter-parliamentary unions to stop the ongoing conflict waged by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian people, SPA reported.
He renewed the AP’s support, assistance, and solidarity with the Palestinian people to achieve their legitimate rights, in accordance with the resolutions of international legitimacy, topped by the establishment of an independent state with the city of Jerusalem as its capital.
In turn, Al-Khalili briefed Al-Asoumi on the latest developments in the State of Palestine, citing the conditions of Palestinian women in the Gaza Strip, praising the efforts of the AP to support Palestine at all Arab, regional and international levels.

The Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Jasem Mohamed Albudaiwi, strongly condemned the Knesset's approval of a bill rejecting the establishment of a Palestinian state, the Saudi Press Agency said on Thursday.
"The decision of the Israeli occupation forces is a clear violation of international resolutions related to the Palestinian cause and confirms their desire and continued efforts to fuel tension and threaten security and stability in the region and the world”, said Albudaiwi in a statement.
He called on the international community to reject and condemn this unjust decision, which reflects the Israeli occupation forces' intentions to expand the conflict and their unwillingness to achieve stability and peace in the region.
Albudaiwi reiterated the GCC countries' positions on the Palestinian cause, supporting the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and supporting the Palestinian people in obtaining all their legitimate rights.
