Final Islamic Summit declaration calls for Palestinians’ right to independent state

The “Mecca Declaration” of the 14th Islamic Summit focused on the issue of Palestine and reiterated the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) call for the Palestinians’ right to statehood.

“The OIC reasserted the key importance of the question of Palestine and the issue of Al Quds to the Islamic nation and reiterated its principled and continuous support on all levels for the Palestinian people to attain their inalienable national rights, including their right to self-determination and the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian State on the 1967 borders with Al Quds as its capital placing emphasis on the need to protect the right of return for refugees under resolution 194 and to face any denial of these rights with full force”. the declaration read.

The Islamic Summit also condemned and rejected any positions issued by international authorities or countries which supports the “ongoing occupation and expansionist settlement project at the expense of the legitimate national rights of the Palestinian people, including the recognition by the US administration of Al Quds as the capital of Israel.”

The Summit whose theme is “Mecca Summit: Together for the Future,” aimed at developing a unified stance on events in the Islamic world. Leaders of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, Turkey, Tunisia, Senegal, Nigeria, Bangladesh, and Pakistan spoke during the summit.

World leaders mainly focused on the issue of Palestine, countering extremism and terrorism, and the issue of growing Islamophobia around the world.

The Islamic Summit also called for the complete withdrawal of Israel from the occupied Syrian Golan Heights and return “to the borders of 4 June 1967, in accordance with Security Council resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973), the Land for Peace legislation, the Madrid Peace Conference and the Arab Peace Initiative adopted by the Arab Summit in Beirut in 2002.”

The issue of Islamophobia was also noted with concern on the final declaration. “In this regard, the Summit encouraged the United Nations and other international and regional organizations to adopt March 15 as the International Day against Islamophobia,” the declaration noted.
