Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al-Thani Biography

Title:
Assistant Foreign Minister for International Affairs of Qatar
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani pointed to Qatar’s firm position to support the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian people’s right to establish their independent state.

HE Assistant Foreign Minister for International Cooperation Affairs said ‘We confirm our support for the Palestinian national reconciliation which was recently reached between the two Palestinian parties and called upon Israel to remove the settlements and stop the expansion in any new settlement construction, preserve the Arab identity of Al-Quds and stop abuses in the occupied Palestinian territories, especially in the blockaded Gaza Strip… the matter which constitutes a flagrant violation of international law and international humanitarian law and international legitimacy resolutions’, the Qatari official told the gathering.”
