Qatar renews call for resolving Gulf crisis through constructive dialogue Jan 24, 2020 0 331 12345 qNANew YorkQATAR has renewed its call to settle the crisis with the blockading countries peacefully through constructive and unconditional dialogue, which preserves the sovereignty of states within the framework of the United Nations Charter, international law and the principles of friendly relations between countries.Qatar has also affirmed its keenness to defuse the crisis and achieve international peace and security.This came in a statement made by the Permanent Representative of Qatar to the UN Ambassador HE Sheikha Alya Ahmed bin Saif al Thani at the regular meeting of the UN Security Council on the situation in the Middle East.Sheikha Alya said Qatar maintains its principled position on the ongoing and unjust blockade and unilateral unlawful measures it has been subjected to for more than two and a half years, which is a flagrant violation of the provisions and purposes of the UN Charter and international law, as well as contributes to undermining regional and international peace and security.Meanwhile, she referred to the misinformation campaign against Qatar by the blockading countries as reflective of a desperate and a failed attempt to undermine the State. She also expressed Qatar’s appreciation of the sincere efforts made by the Amir of the sisterly State of Kuwait HH Sheikh Sabah al Ahmad al Jaber al Sabah.On the Palestinian issue, the ambassador said that the Israeli occupation, illegal settlements and repressive Israeli practices against the brotherly Palestinian people are totally against international conventions and norms.She stressed that settling the Palestinian issue requires ending the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian and Arab lands, including the occupied Syrian Golan and Lebanese territories, and stopping settlement in the occupied land.
