KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – In order to hold Israel accountable for its actions in Gaza, the Committee on Palestine should intensify efforts to seek justice through the various United Nations mechanisms.
Foreign Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said the committee should take this initiative as justice for Palestine was needed and must be done via the Security Council and the Human Rights Council.
“It is time that we move beyond words and concentrate our efforts towards more concrete measures,” he said during the Ministerial Meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in New York on Sept 26.
The text of his speech was made available to Bernama yesterday.
Anifah said the committee also should demand the convening of a Conference of the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention and addressing Israel’s continued non-compliance with the provisions of the instrument.a
