Palestinian question is doorway to world peace

(TAP)- "The Palestinian issue is a doorway to world peace and the new status of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) prohibits any form of normalisation with the Zionist entity," Noureddine Tabboubi, UGTT Secretary-General said on Monday.

At an information meeting organised in partnership with the Palestinian Embassy in Tunisia on the Bahrain conference to be held tomorrow, June 25 in Manama, Tabboubi said that the government in Tunisia must take a serious stand on standardisation to pay tribute to the memory of the Tunisian and Palestinian martyrs of Hammam Chatt in 1985.

The trade union leader also pointed out that some Zionist travel agencies work in silence with official parties.

In this context, he recalled that the UGTT had previously, in collaboration with some activists, fought against the arrival of a Zionist ship in Tunisia under the guise of tourism opening.

Tabboubi considered that the UGTT is targeted inside and outside the country for its principles and its defence of all issues relating to justice in the world, which it will not abandon.

In addition, he pointed out that money spent by some Gulf countries on bombing Yemen or Syria should be spent to support the Palestinian question, and not only through economic conferences such as the one in Bahrain.

Tabboubi announced that the UGTT has decided to organise a popular march on July 8 in Tunis to support the Palestinian question and denounce all the plots that threaten it.

For his part, the Palestinian Ambassador to Tunisia Hayel Fahoum said that all the plots have been revealed, considering that the UGTT's support for the Palestinian question shows its support for all just issues in the world.

According to him, the parties who support Zionism will pay a high price in the future, since the Palestinian question is linked to the history and future of the entire nation.

Representatives of civil society and political parties as well as trade unionists took part in this meeting.
