    SHEMIRANI: "My government believes that, at the heart of any question dealing with the Middle East, including the deteriorating situation in Jerusalem, and the rest of the occupied Arab territories, it remains the imperative of the restoration of the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people to self-determination and an independent state. The fact that nearly all issues pertaining to the Middle East conflict are intimately interconnected with, and evolve around, the indisputable necessity of Palestinian rights, is almost universally accepted. It is also commonly accepted that failure to deal with these realities has brought about situation which constitutes a grave threat to international peace and security."
