The United Nations declared that its adoption today provides an opportunity for the international community to focus its attention on the fact that the Palestinian people have not yet obtained their inalienable rights as defined by the international organization, namely the right to self-determination without external interference, the right to national independence and sovereignty and the right of refugees By returning to their homes and properties from which they were expelled, while the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People in the General Assembly holds a special session to celebrate the International Day of Solidarity.
