Speaker calls for Arab par­lia­ment meet­ing over Al-Aqsa

Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Na­tional Assem­bly Speaker Mar­zouq Al-Ghanem re­ceived at his of­fice yes­ter­day the Mex­i­can Am­bas­sador to Kuwait Miguel An­gel Isidro. MP Nayef Al-Mer­das Al-Ajmi at­tended the meet­ing.

Sep­a­rately, Ghanem has called for an emer­gency ses­sion for the Arab In­terPar­lia­men­tary Union (AIPU) on the on­go­ing es­ca­la­tion in Jerusalem, and the Is­raeli vi­o­la­tion of Al-Aqsa Mosque sanc­tity. Ghanem made the call in a let­ter to AIPU Pres­i­dent Habib El Malki, who is also Speaker of the Moroccan House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

Due to the con­tin­ued vi­o­la­tions by the Is­raeli oc­cu­py­ing forces at Al-Aqsa Mosque, pre­vent­ing Pales­tinian’s from en­ter­ing the site to per­form prayers, Ghanem asked for an emer­gency meet­ing of the AIPU in Morocco or at the Arab League the head­quar­ters in Cairo “as soon as pos­si­ble,” the let­ter reads.

The ses­sion aims to dis­cuss the haz­ardous es­ca­lat­ing sit­u­a­tion in Jerusalem, and to agree on po­lit­i­cal, di­plo­matic and pop­u­lar moves on the Arab, Is­lamic, con­ti­nen­tal and in­ter­na­tional lev­els to strongly press the oc­cu­pa­tion au­thor­i­ties to stop their un­just prac­tices that run against all in­ter­na­tional and hu­man laws and norms, Ghanem noted.— KUNA
