Oman condemns Zionist exploitation of Palestinian natural resources

The Sultanate of Oman has expressed its concern over the Zionist entity’s exploitation of natural resources in the occupied Palestinian territories, including East al-Quds and the occupied Syrian Golan.

This came in a speech on Monday by the Sultanate before the Economic and Financial Committee of the United Nations, delivered by First Secretary Ahmed al-Busaidi.

Al-Busaidi furthermore explained that the Covid-19 pandemic has imposed wide pressures in a global level, as the repercussions associated with the pandemic have reduced the chances of achieving the goals of the global sustainable development plan by 2030.

The Omani official called on the international community to “unanimously agree on a plan and strategy that contributes to achieving a more inclusive and sustainable future,” according to the Omani newspaper Al-Shabiba.

Last July, the Omani Foreign Minister, Badr bin Hamad bin Hamoud Al Busaidi, confirmed that his country will not be the third Gulf country, after the UAE and Bahrain, to normalise relations with the Israeli occupation authorities, contradicting prior reports claiming that Muscat would establish relations with the entity.
