French President Emmanuel Macron Tuesday called for “decisive” negotiations that would allow the Palestinian people to have their rights.
“A just and lasting peace requires, above all, decisive negotiations which will allow the Palestinians to finally have their rights,” Macron said in a virtual address to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
“There is no alternative to courageous negotiations, which will in turn require an agreement on the most thorny issues, respecting everyone’s legitimate aspirations and full recognition of security and sovereignty,” he added.
“I don’t believe in a peace that will be built on hegemony or humiliation, even if it would be compensated by money. Because we know too well that we do not compensate for the humiliation of a people with money. It is up to us, collectively, to build this ambitious solution,” he concluded.
