A Kuwaiti of­fi­cial lauded yes­ter­day the United Na­tions Ed­u­ca­tional, Sci­en­tific, Cul­tural Or­ga­ni­za­tion’s (UNESCO) ap­proval of an Arab-backed res­o­lu­tion re­ject­ing Is­raeli claims of sovereignty over Jerusalem. Kuwaiti del­e­gate to the or­ga­ni­za­tion Dr Me­shal Hayat said that the ap­proval of the Arab draft res­o­lu­tion was a mo­ment of tri­umph for the Pales­tinian cause.

The Kuwaiti of­fi­cial in­di­cated that Is­rael was an oc­cu­py­ing force that had no right­ful claims over Jerusalem. The de­ci­sion also con­demned Is­raeli con­tin­u­ous vi­o­la­tions in Jerusalem, a city con­sider un­der oc­cu­pa­tion since 1967. UNESCO’s World Heritage Coun­cil passed the res­o­lu­tion submitted by the coun­cil’s Arab states dur­ing its meet­ing in Poland on Sun­day. —KUNA
