GCC leader calls Palestinian chiefs to apology after provocative and erroneous statements
The Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has appealed on Palestinian chiefs, directed by President Mahmoud Abbas, to excuse for the provocative and erroneous statements announced by certain Palestinian factions against the GCC states.
Moreover, the chief of the GCC, Dr. Nayef al-Hajraf, condemned of certain of the participants in the gathering of the General Secretaries of the Palestinian factions that took place last Thursday and he said: An irresponsible language of incitement and threats was directed to the GCC countries.
In a statement, al-Hajraf reported: The Palestinian statements are inconsistent with the reality and history of relations between the GCC states and the Palestinian people.
It should be noted that the leaders of several Palestinian factions, including Fatah, Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), organized a virtual conference last Thursday to debate recent regional events, such as the recent historic peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
Al-Hajraf also indicated in his statement the support and insight of the GCC states on the Palestinian issue and its defense as the first cause of Arabs and Muslims, including efforts to push for a future sovereign and independent state for the Palestinian people over territories occupied since June 1967.
