6TH EXTRAORDINARY ISLAMIC SUMMIT
Theme: “Unified Action in Solidarity with Al-Quds”
Republic of Turkey
13 December 2017
Your Excellency, President Erdoğan, Chairman of the Islamic Summit,Your Majesty,Your Highnesses,Excellencies and Distinguished Guests,
Assalamu ‘Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh,
First of all, my thanks to you Mr. President and to the people of the Republic of Turkey for the warm hospitality and excellent arrangements made.
Your opening statement has emphasised the reason of our gathering today and reiterated the centrality of the cause of Palestine and Al-Quds Al-Sharif to the Muslim Ummah.
Brunei Darussalam supports all UN resolutions and joins the international community in expressing our serious concern, on any change in position, on Jerusalem from the status quo.
We believe that the two-state solution must be negotiated and a consensus reached by the parties directly concerned.
This is the most viable long-term solution towards achieving an independent state of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital.
The cause of Palestine is at the core of our Organisation.
In this regard, we should maximise our efforts to support the people of Palestine and alleviate their sufferings.
A just and lasting solution to their plight is much called for and has long been overdue.
The unity and solidarity of the Muslim Ummah is more pertinent now than ever.
With this, Brunei Darussalam is pleased to support the Communiqué and Istanbul Declaration.
