(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The Palestinian people will remain ardently committed to their cause forever, affirmed an eminent Palestinian figure.
Adel Abdullah, Secretary General of Palestinians in Europe Conference, said in remarks to KUNA, on sidelines of the annual convention, which held its 23rd session here late on Friday, said the gathering was intended to re-shed light on hardships of the Palestinian people and address a message to the world that the cause of Jerusalem would remain an issue of destiny for the Palestinian people and the Muslim nation.
Such meetings are held with the aim of re-affirming that the Palestinian people will remain committed to their basic causes and these causes will remain implanted in conscience of the coming generations, he said, re-noting that the conferees sought to address other messages to the world; to remind nations of the globe that the Palestinian people have remained under siege, their territories under occupation and their sanctities targeted dangers and threats.
The holding of the meeting coincided with the 64th anniversary of "Al-Naqba" -- the day the Israelis proclaimed their state on the Palestinian territories.
He praised Austria's stance toward the Palestinian cause at the international quarters, and lauded its recent decision to elevate level of Palestinian diplomatic representation in the European nation to mission.
On efforts of the international quartet, Abdullah criticized its performance charging that it "has been holding negotiations for the sake of negotiations," without tangible fruits.
He also praised Kuwait, namely HH the Amir and the people, for the continuing support for the Palestinian people. He also touched on Kuwaiti properties in Jerusalem and other occupied territories, stressing that the Kuwaitis should seek to reclaim their properties despite allegations "and lies by the Israeli occupation." Abdullah added that the Palestinian people would remain grateful for Kuwait for its political support, relief aid, hosting of refugees and helping in the efforts to break the siege in the occupied territories.
