Kuwait National Assembly rejects US Middle East peace plan – ‘A Failed plan’

The National Assembly yesterday strongly condemned US President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan, calling on the government to continue to reject it while urging all Arab and Islamic nations to also unanimously reject the so-called “Deal of the Century” because it undermines the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.

Lawmakers called for exerting all efforts to oppose and halt the process of normalizing Arab ties with Israel, saying all Israeli practices are in violation of international law. A communique issued by the Assembly stressed the plan stipulates major concessions from the rights of Palestinians. The statement called for unified Arab and Islamic popular and official stands to support the Palestinian people and their just cause.

National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanem called for official Arab, Islamic and international rejection of this “failed plan” and to show full support for the Palestinian people’s steadfastness on their lands. He urged popular and national Arab and Islamic efforts to highlight the systematic crimes committed by the occupying authorities against the Palestinian people.
