Maurice accorde son soutien, sans réserve, aux Palestiniens dans la création de leur État ! Déclaration du Premier ministre Pravind Jugnauth sur le conflit armé entre le Hamas et l’État d’Israël au Parlement ce mardi. Le chef du gouvernement condamne les attaques menées par le Hamas et la riposte disproportionnée, d’Israël. Il se dit choqué et attristé par la gravité de la situation et appelle les instances internationales à accélérer le processus de résolution de ce conflit. Maurice, est en faveur d’une solution pacifique aux deux États, annonce le Premier ministre.

« I am moved and shocked by the gravity of this issue which despite being on the international agenda for decades, has not so far fully addressed the plight of the Palestinian people », dit le Premier ministre d’emblée dans son discours mardi dernier. « Mauritius, as a peaceful and pluricultural society, is committed to upholding the rule of law and the peaceful resolution of conflicts. My government has consistently demonstrated our unwavering support for Palestine, advocating for a just and enduring resolution of this longstanding conflict », estime Pravind Jugnauth. « As a firm believer in the rule of law and respect for international law, Mauritius condemned the attack on Israel by Hamas on 07 October 2023 and equally condemned the disproportionate and indiscriminate attack by Israel on innocent Palestinians during which women, children, infants as well as international officials continue to be brutally killed. Since 07 October 2023, following the launch of the attack by Hamas on Israel, we have witnessed immense suffering and loss of lives of innocent civilians on both the Palestinian and Israel sides. According to the latest reports from the United Nation agencies, as at 30 November 2023, since the start of hostilities, more than 15,000 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza, including about 6,150 children and 4,000 women. Around 80 per cent of the population in Gaza, that is up to 1.8 million people, are estimated to be internally displaced », relève le Chef du gouvernement mauricien.

Pravind Jugnauth a également fait une petite introduction de la guerre entre La Palestine et l’Israël en statuant que « the question of Palestine was first brought to the United Nations General Assembly in 1947. In 1974 the question of Palestine was re-introduced on the agenda of the General Assembly which adopted a resolution reaffirming the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people to self-determination, national independence and sovereignty and the right of the Palestinians to return to their homes. The question of Palestine has subsequently been the subject of numerous resolutions and decisions adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, be it at regular, special or emergency sessions. At the United Nations and in other international fora such as the African Union, the Non-Aligned Movement and the Group of 77, Mauritius has consistently supported the right of the Palestinians to have their own States. That will remain the position of Mauritius. That is why Mauritius has called for an urgent resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the establishment of an independent, viable and prosperous Palestinian State within secure and recognised borders living in peace alongside the State of Israel, under the Two-State Solution framework ».

Maurice soutient la demande de la fin de l’occupation israélienne

« Mauritius has also called for an end to the Israeli occupation that first began in June 1967 with Israel’s policies of land confiscation, illegal settlement and dispossession. In line with our affirmed and declared position, Mauritius has been voting in favour of United Nations resolutions on the question of Palestine. On 26 October 2023, following the failure of the United Nations Security Council to stop the indiscriminate killings of Palestinians, an Emergency Special Session of the General Assembly was convened under the “uniting for peace” initiative on the “Illegal Israeli actions in Occupied East Jerusalem and the rest of the Occupied Palestinian Territory”. Mauritius participated in the debates and called for the immediate cessation of hostilities and urged all States to come to the negotiating table and revive peace talks in good faith. Mauritius voted in favour of the resolution which called for an immediate, durable and sustained humanitarian truce leading to a cessation of hostilities and demanding the immediate, continuous, sufficient and unhindered provision of essential goods and services to civilians in Gaza », soutient Pravind Jugnauth.

Il poursuit son intervention en disant « the resolution also expresses deep concern at the escalation of violence since 07 October 2023 and severe deterioration of the situation in the region in particular in the Gaza strip. It condemns all acts of violence aimed at the Palestinian and Israeli civilians, including all acts of terrorism and indiscriminate attacks as well as acts of provocation, incitement and destruction. It emphasises that civilians must be protected in accordance with international humanitarian law and international human rights law, and deplores in this regard the heavy civilian casualties and widespread destruction ».

Pravind Jugnauth est également revenu sur son discours devant l’Assemblée générale des Nations Unies.

« In my annual statements at the United Nations General Assembly, I have consistently expressed the unwavering support of Mauritius for the Palestinian cause. In the statement which I delivered this September, I emphatically declared, and I quote – “We reaffirm our solidarity with the Palestinian people and reiterate our unwavering support for the two-state solution as we recognise its potential to bring lasting peace and stability to the region. On 30 December 2022, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a resolution, requesting the International Court of Justice to give an Advisory Opinion on the ongoing violation by Israel of the rights of the Palestinian people, and Mauritius voted in favor of that resolution. I wish to emphasize that my government has taken a very proactive stand and Mauritius is among the 57 States which made a written submission to the International Court of Justice. Mauritius looks forward to a clear and unequivocal Advisory Opinion which can lead to the acceleration of the process to find a long-term and sustainable solution for the Palestinian people », soulève t-il.

Le Premier ministre a clôturé son discours en affirmant la position de son gouvernement et de Maurice, « The House may rest assured that my government will continue to support the Palestinian cause and renew its calls for a permanent ceasefire in the region, thus putting an end to all kinds of atrocities ».
