French FM to attend Palestinian flag-raising event at UN
The French foreign minister has announced plans to take part in a ceremony to hoist the Palestinian flag at the United Nations next week despite opposition against the move by the Israeli regime and the US.
Addressing reporters at the UN headquarters in New York, Laurent Fabius stated that his participation at the event would underline France’s “continued support for a two-state solution.”
“We cannot allow the two-state solution to fall apart before our eyes,” said Fabius while also connecting the move to a bid to block further spread of the foreign-backed Daesh terrorist group in the region.
“We cannot risk seeing Daesh take over the Palestinian cause,” added France’s top diplomat, referring to the Takfiri terror force that remains engaged in a massive terrorist campaign across the region.
Authorities of the Palestinian Authority have invited hundreds of world leaders to join President Mahmoud Abbas at the ceremony on Wednesday.
