‘US not honest broker in ME’
DUBAI: UN Special Advisor Lakhdar Brahimi accused the United States on Monday of disregarding the human rights of Palestinians while urging the rest of the world to respect individuals’ freedoms.
Speaking at the Arab Strategy Forum in Dubai, Brahimi called on Arab leaders to stand up to Washington over the Palestinian issue, which he said was key to regional security. “The US, which uses human rights as the focal point of its foreign policy, totally forgets about human rights when it comes to the Palestinians,” the veteran Algerian diplomat said.
“They who support Israel so much must talk to Israel about these rights. There is a lot of Arab blame directed at the United States because of this.” reuters
