Muhamad, who is the Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine, highlighted the difficulties that the Palestinian people have faced and committed to standing in solidarity with them.

Commitment to two-state solutionIn his statement, Muhamad emphasized the need for the international community to support the realization of the internationally recognized two-state solution, with East Jerusalem as its capital, based on pre-1967 borders.

He called on the UN Security Council to make all possible efforts to ensure the full implementation of this solution.

Muhamad also acknowledged Malaysia's commitment to supporting the work of CEIRPP and recognized the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, independence, and sovereignty.

The committee was established in 1975 by the UN General Assembly, through resolution 3376, as a program of implementation to enable the Palestinian people to exercise their inalienable rights to self-determination without external interference, national independence, and sovereignty.

It also seeks to ensure that the Palestinian people can return to their homes and property from which they had been displaced.
