President Al-Alimi confirms Yemen’s position in support of Palestinians and total rejection of liquidating its just cause
His Excellency President Dr. Rashad Mohammed Al-Alimi, President of the Presidential Leadership Council, reiterated Yemen’s and Arab firm position, in support of Palestinian people's self-determination right and to fulfil their legitimate rights, foremost of which is the establishing of their own independent State in accordance with the international resolutions in relevance and Arab Peace Initiative.
In a speech before the joint extraordinary Arab-Islamic summit held in Riyadh, His Excellency the President stated, "The events that have been convulsing the region for weeks reflect that Palestine is still and will remain the heart and essence of the Arab and Islamic conscience and the focus of its national security."
President Al- Alimi affirmed the official and popular Arab -Islamic firm positions in rejecting the brutal Israeli escalation in occupied Palestinian territories , saying: " In every test, Israel finds the same resistant stance, unity, and overwhelming popular solidarity as it was the first time.."
He added, "And today, from this summit, we convey to Israel the same clear message that reflects the just Palestinian cause, the unequivocal support for it , for the Palestine Liberation Organization, and for President Mahmoud Abbas and his government as the legitimate representatives of the Palestinian people. In addition to enhancing collective and multi-party efforts to immediately cease Israeli military operations, protect civilians caught in conflict , and to access to life-saving assistance."
His Excellency asserted “What is happening in Palestine nowadays is an expected result when the power of right is ignored in favour of the right of power. When all peace initiatives are rejected, and when the occupation relies on excess force to impose de facto policies. It is also a result of the international community's failure to fulfil its moral, legal, and political role in addressing such just issues."
President Al- Alimi set an example of the grim reality of Yemen, which has suffered as a result of the Iran- backed Houthi militias’s coup against constitutional legitimacy and national consensus. Saying that Failure to implement international legitimacy resolutions and involvement of major powers in matters that neglected the interests of the Yemeni people, have led to further devastation and enabled the expansionist powers and their fascist militias to shuffle the cards and compromising patriotic and national issues , exacerbating the suffering of the people who pay the highest price of the war.
He noted , "From experience and because we believe in such just causes, the Republic of Yemen stands today, as it has always been, alongside the Palestinian people and alongside all the peoples aspire for justice, equality, and ending racism in all its forms."
His Excellency stressed that " The Israeli occupation authority should realize that a sovereign state is an inevitable fate for the struggle of the Palestinian people. It should also clearly understand our collective support for this just right and our commitment to the clear declared Arab and Islamic No’s during this crisis: No for liquidating the Palestinian cause and forced displacement, and no for threatening the interests of our peoples under any circumstances."
His Excellency addressed the leaders of Arab and Islamic countries, saying, " The best path to supporting the Palestinian people requires us to have a common position and to strengthen our national states, our national security and put an end to internal disputes, wars, and armed conflicts."
He added, "Therefore, for our part in the Presidential Leadership Council, We call on the Houthi militias not to exploit the tragedy of the Palestinian people by synchronized escalation on all fronts in the liberated provinces, and end the cities' blockade, stop planting landmines, stop targeting the civilians everyday by missiles and drones.
The President called on those militias to " deal responsibly with the road map suggested by the brothers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to establish permanent cease-fire and revive the peace process to maintain Yemen's identity and position within its Arab and Islamic surrounding, support Arab and Muslim nations' interests and causes, first and firmest the Palestinian cause, enhance the security of the region and the world"
Following is the full speech:
In the Name of Allah, the Most Benevolent, the Most Merciful,
Praise be to God who said, “And hold fast to the rope of God, altogether, and do not become divided.”
My brother, Your Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Chairman of the Arab Summit,
Your Majesties, Your Excellences, Your Highnesses,
Your Excellency Mr. Ahmed Aboul Gheit,
Secretary General of the League of Arab States,
Your Excellency Mr. Hussein Ibrahim Taha, the Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)
Your Excellencies and Highnesses,
Allow me, at the outset, to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the fraternal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, under the leadership of my brother, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, and his Crown Prince, His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman, for graciously hosting this summit, and for their firm stances on the nation’s issues, defending its identity and national security.
Your Majesties, Excellencies and Highnesses,
Ladies and Gentlemen,,
The facts that have been shaking our region for weeks confirm that Palestine is still and will remain the heart and essence of the Arab conscience and the focus of its national security.
This has been demonstrated in the official Arab position, including this emergency summit, which confirms that we remain united as peoples and governments in support of the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and the fulfillment of their legitimate rights, at the forefront of which is the establishment of their independent, sovereign state, in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative.
In every test, Israel finds the same resistant position, unity, and overwhelming popular solidarity as it was the first time, and here it is today, through this summit, facing the same clear message affirming the justice of the Palestinian cause, and absolute support for it, the PLO, and President Mahmoud Abbas and his government, as a legitimate representative for the Palestinian people, and to strengthen collective and multilateral efforts to immediately stop the war on the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, protect besieged civilians, and enable them to obtain life-saving aid.
Your Majesties, Excellencies and Highnesses,,
What is happening in Palestine today is an expected result when the power of right is ignored in favor of the right of power, when all peace initiatives are rejected, and the occupation based on excess force resorts to imposing De facto policies, and when the international community fails in its moral, legal, and political role in resolving just issues.
This is the wisdom expressed in the reality of my country, which is afflicted by the coup of the Houthi militias supported by the Iranian regime against constitutional legitimacy and national reconciliation. Where the non-implementation of international legitimacy resolutions, and the major powers falling into policies that neglected the interests of the Yemeni people, led to more devastation and the empowerment of expansionist forces, and its fascist and terrorist groups to shuffling the cards, compromising on national issues and the pain of the people who pay the highest price for the war.
Based on this experience, and out of belief in just causes, the Republic of Yemen stands today, as it has always done, with the Palestinian people and all peoples who aspire to justice, equality, and an end to racism in all its forms.
Your Majesties, Excellencies and Highnesses,,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The Israeli occupation authority must realize that a sovereign state is an inevitable fate for the struggle of the Palestinian people. It must also clearly realize our collective support for this legitimate right, and our adherence to the declared Arab no’s during this crisis: No for the liquidation of the Palestinian cause, No for barbaric invasion, No for forced displacement, No for threatening the interests of our peoples, or the security of our region under any circumstances.
It is also expected that one of the priorities of the goals of this high summit is to work with the international community to support radical solutions to the Palestinian tragedy, in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions, and not to rely on anesthetizing or partial approaches whose implementation is conditional on a solution known to the unseen, but rather by eliminating the causes of violence and sustaining stability, peace and prosperity for the peoples of the region.
Your Majesties, Excellencies and Highnesses,
In conclusion, allow me to emphasize the importance of consciously distinguishing between the responsible position of support that aims to finding comprehensive and sustainable solutions to the Palestinian issue, and the attempts of the Houthi militias, and the terrorist organizations allied with them, to opportunistically jump on the plight of the Palestinian people, the catastrophe of Gaza’s destruction and the wounds, suffering and pain of its residents, and claim formal tournaments that contribute to nothing but perpetuating the reality of the dysfunctional Arab regime and dismantling the national state in the Arab region.
The best path - my brothers - to support the Palestinian people requires us to be on the same stance, strengthen our national states, our national security, and end internal disputes, wars and armed conflicts.
Therefore, on our part in the Presidential Leadership Council; we call on the Houthi militias to prove their seriousness in this context, not to exploit the tragedy of the Palestinian people with their synchronized escalation on all fronts in the liberated governorates, to end the siege of cities, to stop planting internationally prohibited mines, or targeting civilians with missiles and suicide drones, to deal responsibly with the road map proposed by our brothers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for a ceasefire, and reviving the comprehensive political process that preserves Yemen’s identity, status, and returns it to its Arab surroundings with greater strength in supporting the issues of the Arab nation, most notably the Palestinian issue, and enhancing security and stability in the region and the world.
Peace, mercy and blessings of God,
