In the region.

It renewed its emphasis on supporting peace efforts and supporting the two-state solution, with safe coexistence, and its categorical rejection of all projects that do not consolidate a just and comprehensive peace and a permanent solution to the Palestinian issue, stressing its support for the legitimate demands of the Palestinian people and their right to obtain full membership in the United Nations.

The Sultanate of Oman affirmed its accession to the statements made by the delegation of the sisterly United Arab Emirates (on behalf of the Arab Group), the delegation of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania on behalf of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and the delegation of the Republic of Uganda on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement, all of which affirmed the international community’s support for the demand. The State of Palestine is the project to obtain full membership in the United Nations, like the rest of the countries of the world
