Question of Palestine - Statement by Iceland

GA/66 -Question of Palestine

Statement by H.E. Ambassdor Gréta Gunnarsdóttir 

Permanent Representative of Iceland to the United Nations

 

Mr. President,

My statement will be very short but substantive.

First of all, Iceland aligns itself with the EU statement on the Question of Palestine made earlier today. 

Iceland would, however, like to use this opportunity to inform the General Assembly about a resolution passed earlier today by the Icelandic Parliament, with a broad support and no votes against, where the Parliament entrusts the Icelandic Government to recognize Palestine as an independent and sovereign state within the pre- Six Day War borders. 

The matter now rests with the Icelandic Government.

Thank you Mr. President
