Venezuela once again expresses its firm support for the noble Palestinian cause, strongly condemns and rejects the alleged illegal annexation operations announced by the new Israeli coalition government to establish new Jewish settlements in the West Bank and in the Jordan Valley, seeking to apply the illegal “Deal of the Century” driven by the imperialism of the United States of America. Today, more than ever, Al Nakba is in force, as is the permanent struggle of the Palestinian people for the respect of their sovereignty, independence and self-determination.

Sooner than later, Palestine, with the majority determination of the member countries of the United Nations, will achieve recognition as a sovereign state, in accordance with international law and as established in UN resolutions that establish the creation of the Palestinian state in accordance to the borders validly established in 1967, having East Jerusalem as its capital. Only then will there be peace for all parties.”
