Qatar condemns terrorism
Throughout the 28th session of the Human Rights Council, Faisal bin Abdullah Al Henzab, The Permanent Representative of Qatar to the United Nations Office at Geneva, stated: “We share with the UN High Commissioner his view that combating terrorism is one of the great challenges facing our world today”.
Al Henzab noted that fighting against terrorism had formed discrimination based on religion and ethnicity.
He noted that victims of terrorism were now considered criminals due to their resistance to Israeli occupation, while the actions of their oppressors were justified as defense against terrorism.
Al Henzab demanded the international community to ensure all legitimate rights to Palestinians and their right to establish an independent state, in addition to prosecuting those responsible for crimes against them.
The killings and destruction committed daily by the Syrian regime was described as the worst humanitarian crises in the modern era, which Al Henzab thought was causing a negative impact across the region.
The Qatari official stressed that the tragic situation of Syrians was due to the absence of an international solution to the crisis, which had allowed the regime to escalate crimes and extremist groups to thrive.
Al Henzab also declared that the armed rebellion carried out by Houthi groups and their supporters against the Yemeni government, can lead to human rights violations, and threaten Yemen’s sovereignty.
He affirmed that Qatar would continue to promote partnerships with regional and international organizations to support humanitarian and development efforts aimed at protecting and promoting human rights.
