VICTORIA, September 21, 2011 (WAFA) - President of the Republic of Seychelles, James Alix Michel, Wednesday affirmed his country’s full support for the Palestinian bid to United Nations.
In a meeting with the Palestinian ambassador to Tanzania, Nasri Abu Jaish, Michel praised the Palestinian leadership’s efforts to gain full UN membership and to gain independence for the Palestinian people.
Abu Jaish delivered a letter from President Mahmoud Abbas to Michel and gave him a detailed overview on the Palestinian bid to UN.
Seychelles minister of foreign affairs said, during a separate meeting with Abu Jaish, that his country will vote in favor of Palestine at the UN and that it will support all decisions regarding the Palestinian issue.
He said Seychelles believes in the two-state solution because it is unfair for the Palestinian people not to get their right to independence and their right to establish their own state based on the 1967 borders.
He expressed hope that the Palestinian leadership will succeed in obtaining a full membership at the UN similar to other countries.T.R./M.S.
