A Report by Frederic Währen
About 360 Diplomats and UN-Delegates visited on this ‘International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People’.
The event was opened by UN Director General, Geneva, Mr. Michael Moller who read out a statement from the UN’s General Secretary, Mr. Ban Ki-moon.
A one-minute’s silence was held for the late former Head of State of Cuba, Fidel Castro.
To observe a minute’s silence for a late Statesman in Geneva, surrounded by so many high Diplomats and Delegates, was an unforgettable ‘special experience’.
After this followed different presentations and speeches by various Ambassadors and UN Representatives on the situation in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank.
