The government of Maldives has urged the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to reconsider the admission of Palestine as a full member state of the UN, in line with the Resolution “Admission of New Member States to the United Nations”, which was adopted by the General Assembly on Friday.

Maldives delivered a statement at the 10th emergency special session, during which the island nation noted that the overwhelming support for the resolution sent a strong message to the security council.

Further, the government of Maldives has called on UN member states to act with urgency to stop the ongoing suffering in Palestine.

Maldives also called on UN members to make Israel comply with its obligations under international law and international humanitarian law.

The island nation went on to highlight that a comprehensive solution to the conflict in the Middle East can only be achieved with the recognition and establishment of an independent and sovereign State of Palestine, based on pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The 10th Emergency Special Session was resumed on 10 May 2024 upon the request of the Chairs of the Arab Group, Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and the Non-aligned Movement.
