Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in a speech at the December 9, 2022 Arab-China Summit in Riyadh, that the State of Palestine will continue to support the One-China Policy. He said that Israel's United Nations membership must be rescinded unless it is held accountable for failing to implement UN Resolutions 181 and 194. Abbas also said that Britain and the United States must apologize to the Palestinians and pay reparations for their part in the Balfour Declaration and the British Mandate. He added that Israel must also apologize and pay reparations for the Nakba. Abbas' speech was aired on Alghad TV (Egypt, UAE).

Mahmoud Abbas: "I would like to stress, my friend the honorable President [Xi Jinping], that the State of Palestine, which believes in the justice of your position, will continue to stand firmly by China's side in support of its One-China policy, and in order to fend off the attacks against China in all international forums.


"UNGA resolutions 181 from 1947 and 194 from 1949 constituted conditions for Israel's acceptance as a member of the UN. But to this day, Israel has not implemented or even accepted, these two resolutions. Israel must be help accountable. Either it accepts these two resolutions, or it should not be a member in the UN. In addition, we stress that Britain and the U.S. must apologize and pay reparations to the Palestinian people for the Balfour Declaration, in which they collaborated, as well as for the [British] mandate. "

"Israel should also apologize and pay reparations for what it did during the Nakba.
