Palestine on the UN: Coercive Measures End the Principle of Sovereignty

In developing countries, the human cost of these measures is high, said Feda Abdelhady-Nasser.

The Palestinian representative to the United Nations, Feda Abdelhady-Nasser, declared on Thursday that coercive measures, including blockades, end the principle of sovereignty, self-determination and international cooperation enshrined in the UN Charter.

Declaring that if the international community truly aspires to cooperation and unity to achieve progress, he pointed out that “then the elimination of unilateral coercive measures requires not only our urgent gaze but also collective measures to abide by the principles of justice and equality which are the cornerstone of this esteemed institution and the post-African international legal order the Second World War”.

“These measures cause serious harm to the most vulnerable populations, exacerbate poverty and impede the development of nations, particularly developing countries. In doing so, they obstruct our collective efforts to achieve our sustainable development goals, particularly those related to ending poverty, hunger, ensuring good health, well-being and fostering inclusive economic growth”, claimed Abdelhady-Nasser.

In developing countries, the human cost of these measures is high, he stressed and stressed that it is not an abstract concept, but a painful reality for hundreds of millions of people around the world.

It is estimated that more than a third of the world’s population is affected by these measures, he said, stressing that “these measures erode the spirit of international cooperation”.

“Our world today is deeply interconnected, a world defined by interdependence. Our world more than ever needs solidarity, security and peace,” she said.

We must strengthen multilateralism, the role of the institutions, and in particular the UN, and support developing countries. It is a matter of human dignity, he insisted.
