Minister Naledi Pandor, DIRCO, calls for accountability for Israel's apartheid during UNGA77 General Debate


"While we work to address contemporary conflicts, we should not ignore long-standing ones such as Palestine that has been on the United Nations’ agenda throughout the seven decades of existence of the organisation. We cannot ignore the words of the former Israeli negotiator at the Oslo talks, Daniel Levy, who addressed the UN Security Council recently and referred to, “The increasingly weighty, body of scholarly, legal and public opinion that has designated Israel to be perpetrating apartheid in the territories under its control.” Israel must be held accountable for its destructive actions that have significantly impaired the possibility of a two-state solution."

Naledi Pandor, Minister for International Relations and Cooperation of the Republic of South Africa, addresses the general debate of the 77th Session of the General Assembly of the UN (New York, 20 - 26 September 2022)
