MESSAGE TO PEOPLE OF MOYLE by Mayor Rafiq Mekki

Twinning on a Permanent Basis so much ado about nothing.

A PERMANENT MECHANISM WAS SIGNED WITH OUR COUNTERPARTS IN THE MUNICIPALITY OF GAZA ON 2ND APRIL 2012.

The following is PART of the latest update from our Partner Authority in the Municipality of Gaza. This section is to the people of Moyle from Gaza Mayor Rafiq Mekki.
Dear Friends and Colleagues of European Twinned Council of Moyle,
 
I would like to express our gratitude and thanks for your sympathy and solidarity with the Gazan people during the recent Israeli attack on Gaza. 175 people have lost their lives, out of them 50 children and other 1399 have been injured, out of them 601 children; we hope that children and civilian people shall not be again the victims of this conflict, however, we expect more escalation in the future as justice and legitimate rights of freedom and security have not been prevailed yet.
 
 
I would like to seize this opportunity to thank the European Governments that are going to back our bid for “Non-Member Observer State” status at the U.N. General Assembly vote tomorrow. France has announced officially their backing to our bid and other European Governments still undecided; It is the first step towards recognizing the State of Palestine away from violence and through the peaceful diplomatic channels.
 
Thanks again for all your support and solidarity.
