Kuwait submits memo to International Court of Justice on Israeli
KUWAIT: Kuwait has submitted a written memo requesting the International Court of Justice to adopt an opinion on the consequences of continued Israeli occupation violations of the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination.
Kuwait’s memo noted that the Israeli occupation of the territories undermined efforts to establish an independent Palestinian state, and affected all aspects of life for the Palestinian people.
It also affirmed that Kuwait opposes the use of force by any means in international relations, while underlining the necessity of respecting states’ independence and sovereignty, and ensuring the protection of civilians.
Kuwait urged the ICJ to pay attention to the documents it, as well as other countries and international organizations, had submitted, calling for an ICJ resolution to end the Israeli occupation.
The memo also reaffirmed Kuwait’s unwavering position supporting the Palestinian cause and all international efforts to ensure its people all their legitimate rights of an independent state on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
