UNGA: Morocco Welcomes Adoption of Resolution Backing Admission of State of Palestine as Full Member of United Nations

The Kingdom of Morocco on Friday welcomed the adoption by the United Nations General Assembly of a resolution supporting the admission of the State of Palestine as a full member of the United Nations, Morocco’s Permanent Mission to the UN said. Through this resolution, of which Morocco was among the first co-sponsors, the General Assembly confers additional rights to the State of Palestine within various bodies of the United Nations. The text also urges the Security Council to give favourable consideration to full Palestinian membership. The Kingdom of Morocco, whose Sovereign, His Majesty King Mohammed VI, chairs the Al-Quds Committee of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, will continue, as it has always done, to push for the achievement of the two-State solution, with the establishment of an independent Palestinian State, on the borders of June 4, 1967, with Al Quds East as capital, underlined the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom to the UN on X.
