In the Name of God, the Compassionate, and the Merciful
President of the United Nations General Assembly, Mr. Vuk Jeremic
Excellencies Heads of Delegations,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
At the outset, I wish to affirm our appreciation to all Member States that, in their statements to this Assembly, have stressed the urgency for progress towards the realization of a just peace in our region that allows for the fulfillment by the Palestinian people of their inalienable national rights.
