The government of Maldives has called on the United Nations Security Council to support the admission of the State of Palestine as a full member state of the United Nations.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs publicized a statement on Thursday.

The government of Maldives extended support during a statement delivered by Principal Secretary to the President on Foreign Relations Mohamed Naseer at the United Nations Security Council Quarterly Open Debate on the situation in the middle east. 

Principal Secretary Naseer called on the UN members, particularly on the permanent members of the UNSC to extend their full and unconditional support for the admission of the State of Palestine to the United Nations as a full member state.

Further, the government of Maldives also called on the UNSC to impose sanctions including an arms embargo on Israel for violating the Charter of the Council on several occasions. 

Maldives reiterated its support for a lasting solution to the conflict, through a two-state solution, with the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian State based on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The Quarterly Open Debate on the Situation in the Middle East was convened during the presidency of Malta in the UNSC.

On 2 April 2024, the State of Palestine submitted a letter to the UN Secretary General requesting renewed consideration to be given to the application of the State of Palestine for membership in the UN.
