Equatorial Guinea abstains in votes on Palestine-Israel conflict

26.12.2017

With 128 votes in favour, the resolution known as the "Jerusalem Statute" was passed, which urges Palestinians and Israelis to continue with peaceful negotiations, as they have in the main opted for non acceptance, and the grouping of nations considers the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory as illegal.

In this way, victory was achieved against the nine ballots supported by the United States, in the declaration made on 6th December by the President, Donald Trump, recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The session was led by the President of the UN General Assembly, Miroslav Laj?ák, who invited the various speakers to present the various postures in the debate.

In addition to the results obtained in favour, it should be pointed out that a total of 35 countries, among then the Republic of Equatorial Guinea and Canada, abstained from voting, fostering the hope of understanding between the two parties.
