President Hage Geingob reaffirmed Namibia’s unwavering support for the People of Palestine at the occasion of the observation of the Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The Namibian Head of State further reiterated Namibia’s “call for the unconditional removal of the blockade on the Gaza Strip and express our firm desire to see the eventual establishment of a Palestinian State and its unconditional admission as a full member of the United Nations.”
President Geingob further stated that “on behalf of the Government and the people of the Republic of Namibia and on my own behalf, I wish to express hope for the realization of peace in the Middle East which will pave the way for the co-existence of a Palestinian State together with Israel.”
“Whether this peace can be realized or not, will depend on the strong political will of the International Community to ensure that all measures are taken to ensure stability within the region. There is therefore a need for the International Community to work in unison in order to rally against the continued aggression by Israel which has resulted in the embargo on the Gaza Strip as well as the recent siege in Gaza which resulted in the death and displacement of many Palestinians” the Namibian Head of State concluded.
