When it comes to economic, social and cultural rights, we have been working tirelessly to improve the condition of women and to ensure gender equality, without overlooking the need to ensure education and free medical care for all, pursuant to Article 7 of the constitutional declaration.

The situation in the Middle East remains extremely difficult and peace will be difficult when the Palestinians are continuing to suffer and settlements continue to be built and the city of Jerusalem continues to suffer and international resolutions continue to be ignored. We stand side-by-side with the Palestinian people, rejecting the law on the the nation-state of the Jewish people. This is a dangerous escalation and an attempt to try to ignore the Palestinian issue, trying to deprive the Palestinian people of their land and this is unacceptable.

Furthermore, the people of Syria are experiencing disastrous humanitarian situations in some regions as a result of a conflict which has caused human and material damage on an enormous scale and the displacement of many innocent Syrians.

With regard to Yemen, we express our concern with regard to the humanitarian situation there and the disastrous consequences of that. This conflict is a threat to the security of the country and the region. We call for an end to the bloodbath in that country and to alleviate the suffering of this brotherly people
