Democratic Means Key to Peace in Palestine

Democratic Means Key to Peace in Palestine

The ambassador to international organizations in Vienna said on Friday that lasting peace in Palestine can be achieved only through using democratic means.            
Speaking on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, Reza Najafi said, "The only way to secure lasting peace in Palestine is to promote justice, put an end to discrimination and occupation and use democratic mechanisms," IRNA reported.   
He said, "The issue of Palestine is no longer an Islamic-Arabic case but it has turned into a complicated political and legal challenge in the international arena since 65 years ago."
He went on to say that the Palestinian people have been suffering from oppression, homelessness, massacre and occupation of their homes for years and they have been deprived of their rights throughout these years due to the "colonial" and "destructive" policies of the Zionist regime.  
He continued that the criminal actions of the Zionists have once again thrown into question the creditability of the decisions made by the international community and the civilized world, especially the United Nations Security Council, and have undermined the values of the human society.
In 1977, the UN General Assembly called for the annual observance of 29 November as the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.  
 On this basis, this day is commemorated at the UN headquarters in New York and its affiliated offices all around the world, including in Vienna and Geneva.
The ceremony this year was of higher significance because it coincided with the year 2014, which is proclaimed by the General Assembly as the International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
