Saudi Arabia demands Israel to abide UN resolution

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia has demanded Israel to abide the United Nations resolutions, reported Al Arabia on Saturday.

 Saudi Arabia has said that Palestinians, and people worldwide, have the right to support the right to self-determination during a speech at the United Nations’ Special Political and Decolonization Committee meeting, Samaa reported.

“Members of the Gulf Cooperation Countries reaffirm their support for the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination, and calls for a timeline ending Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories,” said Manal Radwan, first secretary at Saudi Arabia’s mission at the UN.

On the issue of Western Sahara, Saudi Arabia confirmed support of Morocco’s autonomous region of the Sahara, and supports the position of Morocco.

In 2006 the Moroccan Royal Advisory Council for Saharan Affairs (CORCAS) proposed a plan for the autonomy of Western Sahara and made visits to a number of countries to explain and gather support for their proposal.
