ARAB LEAGUE COMMENDS SWEDISH STANCE

CAIRO, Egypt, Oct 31 – The Arab League has today commended the Swedish Government, for officially recognising the State of Palestine, describing the decision as a correct step, on the right path to achieve the legitimate demands of the Palestinian people.

Arab League Assistant Secretary-General for Occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, Mohammed Subaih, said that, the Swedish decision would pave the way for other countries in the world to recognise the state of Palestine.

In a statement today, he said that many countries in the world are outraged by the policies of Israel, which flouts the international resolutions.

He urged the international community to proclaim its official recognition of the State of Palestine, on basis of the June 4, 1967 pre-war borders, with Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital.
