HH The Amir Receives UN Chief
His Highness The Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani received this evening the Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon, at Al Bahr Palace.
During the meeting, HH The Amir and the UN Chief reviewed the latest developments in Palestine, particularly in the Gaza Strip.
The UN Chief briefed HH The Amir on the organisation’s efforts for a cease-fire in the Strip.
HH The Amir noted the importance of swift international action to stop the war crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinians, in addition to the importance of the international community to shoulder its ethical and legal responsibilities to end the unjust siege imposed on the Gaza Strip, enabling the Palestinian people to live in dignity and have international protection.
HH The Amir warned that the failure of the international community to put an end to Israeli crimes practiced daily against the Palestinians would result in serious humanitarian consequences.
