Sudan Legislature calls on Islamic parliaments to urge recognizing Palestinian state

Khartoum, 7 Dec (SUNA) - The Sudanese National Legislature has urged Parliaments in Islamic countries to press their governments into fully recognizing the Palestinian State and consider Jerusalem as its capital city.

The Legislature, a two camera parliament- the National Assembly and the States Legislative Council-, held an emergency session on Thursday chaired by the Speaker of the National Assembly, professor Ibrahim Ahmed Omar, said these Islamic countries should exchange diplomatic representation with the state of Palestine and move their embassies with Palestine to Jerusalem, and establish Palestinian diplomatic representation in their countries.

The Sudanese legislature also said its counterparts in the Muslim countries should press their governments into declaring Israel and occupational force on all Palestinian lands Tel Aviv entered in 1967.

It urged the Palestinian people to unite their ranks and urged African countries to cancel the planned visit to the Holy Al Aqsa Mosque.
The legislature also declared its rejection of the announcement of American decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, calling on the government of Sudan and all Arab and Islamic countries to take the proper and strong action for defeating the American decision.

It urged for holing extraordinary session by the Arab parliament and African parliament and the Islamic Parliament to take similar decision of rejection and to support the Palestinian resistance.

The legislature called on the Arab and Islamic government to do away with their difference and unite and direct their wars against the Zionist enemy.
