MIRCO Executive Director, Penda Naanda in a statement on Monday said the government has noted with “grave concern” and expresses its solidarity with the Palestinian people and calls on the Israeli forces to end the violent acts against the Palestinians.
“Namibia further reaffirms its resolute support for the legitimate struggle of the Palestinian people against Israeli occupation, the inalienable right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and independence with East Jerusalem as their capital,” he added.
