Prime minister urges Muslim countries to be united on Palestinian rights

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina urged the Muslim countries to be united on the question of just rights of Palestine.


“We want that the Muslim countries and Ummah to be united so that the Palestinians get their just rights,” she said on Thursday when a journalist drew her attention to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel at a press conference.


The press conference was convened to brief the media about the outcome of the premier’s just-concluded visit to Cambodia.


Trump reversed decades of U.S. policy on Wednesday by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, imperiling Middle East peace efforts and upsetting the Arab world and Western allies alike.


The prime minister said the declaration made by Trump on Jerusalem is not acceptable to anyone of the Islamic World.


She said there is a UN resolution on Jerusalem and steps should be taken according to the resolution.

“It seems that none will accept its non-compliance,” she said.


The prime minister said the Palestinians have a right and their own state will have to be recognized.
