Morocco votes on a resolution to examine the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories

In line with its just positions, Morocco voted for a resolution in favor of the involvement of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to rule on the legal consequences of the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories. The vote was taken before the United Nations General Assembly.

Composed of 193 members, the General Assembly of the United Nations submitted to the vote a resolution asking the International Court of Justice to examine the Israeli occupation of Palestine and to rule on the legal consequences linked to this subject.

During this vote, which took place on Friday, the resolution was validated by 87 votes, including that of Morocco.

Of the total number of voters, 26 countries voted against and led by Israel, the United States and Great Britain, while 53 countries preferred to abstain.

The Arab countries all voted for this resolution, and several Western countries delivering moralizing speeches on “human rights” voted against or abstained.

Among the abstaining countries are Finland, France, New Zealand, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland. Other countries such as Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, and Great Britain voted against.

The Independent International Commission of Inquiry of the United Nations on the occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem and Israel, welcomed the positive vote of this resolution which opens the way for the ICJ to give an opinion on the file.
