The Foreign Ministry expresses its deep regret over the failure of the Security Council to adopt a draft resolution recommending granting Palestine full membership in the United Nations.

The Ministry affirms that Palestine has a historical right to establish its state, and depriving it of this right constitute a violation of the Palestinian people rights, which poses a threat of permanent instability in the region, and can have devastating consequences, especially in light of the continued war against Gaza and the failure of international efforts to end the crisis.
