Hariri Hails Abbas’ ‘Historic’ Speech

Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri praised on Saturday Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ speech at the United Nations in which he demanded that Palestine be admitted as a full member state at the international organization. “The speech revealed Israel’s hostile plans and its hidden intentions to reject all efforts to achieve peace,” Hariri said.

Hariri said the Palestinian Authority President’s speech “expressed the openness of the Palestinian National Authority and its insistence to carry on the peaceful path based on the Arab initiative in order to achieve its right and establish the Palestinian State with Jerusalem as its capital,” according to a statement from his office. “The speech formed a historical overview, clearly revealing the aggressive intentions of Israel and its hidden plans to reject all peace efforts,” he added.

In his statement released on Saturday, Hariri also criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address at the UN General Assembly as “an effort to evade the Palestinian people’s legitimate rights and reject the will of the international community.” He explained that Netanyahu’s speech represents a new attempt by the Zionist entity to circumvent the legitimate rights of the Palestinians and “demonstrates the insistence of the Israeli leadership to violate international laws and its refusal to respect the will of the international community.”

The head of the Future party called on the Arab world to demonstrate solidarity with the Palestinians in order to allow the Palestinian Authority to achieve its mission to establish an independent state. “The Palestinian leadership should not be left alone in facing the Israeli rejection and the pressures exerted by international parties against this important historic step,” he added.

Hariri also highlighted the need for intra Palestinian solidarity to be maintained. “Palestinian national unity is the cornerstone for any confrontation of the Israeli dangers,” he concluded.
