The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates of the State of Palestine welcomes the overwhelming majority voting of the members of the General Conference of the New Democrats Party in Canada  in favor of a resolution entitled “Justice and Peace for Israel and Palestine”, which calls for an end to the Israeli occupation and the prevention of economic exchange with settlements, in addition to the freezing of bilateral arms trade between Canada and Israel until the rights of the Palestinian people are respected.

Moreover, the ministry appreciates the voting of 80% of the party’s general conference members in favor of the resolution, which reflects the international and popular belief in the justice of the Palestinian cause, and the need to end the Israeli occupation and stop human rights violations by the State of Israel.

The Ministry extends its appreciation and gratitude to the efforts of those who has worked for years on the Canadian arena to issue this historic decision, including civil society individuals and associations, the solidarity movement with the Palestinian people, trade unions, politicians, and members of the New Democrats Party who believe in the justice of the Palestinian cause, which establishes a new phase on the international scene in moving forward towards defending the rights of the Palestinian people , their right to enjoy freedom and independence in their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital, despite the threats and intimidation campaigns practiced by the State of Israel and the lobby against the supporters of the Palestinian rights around the world.
