Mansour Ayyad Al-Otaibi Biography

Title:
First Secretary of the Permanent Mission of the State of Kuwait to the United Nations
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“Mansour Ayyad Al-Otaibi (Kuwait) said his country supported all efforts to reach a final solution on status issues, including borders, water and settlements. However, Israeli practices could undermine those efforts with the expansion of its settlements, continued land confiscation and the restriction of the movement of people and goods by dividing the Palestinian territories, alongside the seven-year Gaza blockade. As those and other activities exacerbated tensions in the region, he called on Israel to end its blockade, to halt aggressions and to comply with relevant Security Council resolutions. Israel should also withdraw from the Syrian Golan and end aggressions against Lebanon. He expressed support for the Palestinian people’s aspirations and the establishment of a Palestinian State, which he hoped would soon become the 194th State of the United Nations.”
