Today, Friday, the State of Palestine participated in the coordination meeting between the Foreign Ministers of the Non-Aligned Movement, the Group of 77 and China, and the Ministerial Conference of the Group of 77 and China, which witnessed the election of Uganda to chair the group for the year 2024.
The State of Palestine was represented at the meeting and ministerial conference, which were held at the United Nations headquarters in New York, by its permanent representative to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, on behalf of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Riyad Al-Maliki.
Mansour congratulated Uganda on its election to chair the Group of 77 and China for next year 2024, thanking Cuba for its distinguished performance in chairing the group during the current year 2023.
Mansour stressed the importance of the unity and solidarity of the group’s countries to confront challenges and difficulties in all development and political fields to achieve sustainable development, stressing the rejection of unilateral punitive steps against a number of the group’s member states by specific countries.
He also stressed the necessity of reforming and changing the global economic and financial system that is heavily biased in favor of the countries of the North at the expense of the countries of the South, which constitute the overwhelming majority of the countries of the world.
Mansour appreciated the group's principled solidarity with Palestine and the Palestinian people.
