CAIRO, Nov 30 — First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said Saturday Arab foreign ministers, ending a one-day meeting in Cairo Saturday, agreed on a future plan of action to end the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.
“The Arab Foreign Ministers Council has approved the draft resolution presented by the Arab Peace Initiative Committee about the future plan for Arab support to the Palestinian cause,” the Minister told KUNA upon departing Cairo after partaking in the extraordinary Arab foreign ministers and Arab Peace Initiative Committee (APIC) meetings.
In the resolution, the ministers agreed that time has come to put into effect a comprehensive plan to end the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land, he said.
Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled said that the council has assigned Kuwait, Mauritania, Palestine, Jordan and Arab League Secretary General to lead diplomatic efforts and contacts with the world countries, particularly the permanent members of the UN Security Council, to ensure their support for an Arab draft UNSC resolution to end the Israel occupation.
The Kuwait top diplomat said that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has briefed the conferees about the latest developments in the Palestinian territories and the outcome of his recent meetings with world leaders.
