Speaking at the open debate, His Excellency Mr. Ahmed Sareer, Permanent Representative of the Maldives to the United Nations said that “the United Nations resolutions and subsequent negotiations have made clear that the Israeli occupation that began in 1967 has no place in the modern world, and that the State of Palestine must be recognized”.  He further urged that the State of Palestine must be granted full independence with its pre-1967 borders and with East Jerusalem as its capital.
