Bahrain welcomes the UNGA’s resolution regarding Palestine’s eligibility for full UN membership


Manama, The Kingdom of Bahrain welcomed the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution, regarding Palestine’s right to obtain full membership in the United Nations.

The resolution adopted by majority vote of 143 also recommended that the Security Council reconsider the matter favourably. It also grants Palestine additional rights and privileges related to its status in the international organisation.

Bahrain valued the efforts of the Arab Group, led by the United Arab Emirates, in presenting and adopting this resolution during the Tenth Emergency Special Session of the General Assembly. A statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said this reflected the international consensus on supporting the legitimate historical rights of the Palestinian people to self-determination, freedom, justice, equality, independence, and ending the occupation, in accordance with the international law.

The statement reiterated Bahrain’s position on calling for a ceasefire in Gaza and the delivery of humanitaria
n aid to civilians. It commended the UN resolution’s demonstration of the international community’s backing of the peace process in the Middle East, granting Palestinian their legitimate rights to establish an independent state, with East Jerusalem as its capital, based on the two-state solution, in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.
