A Palestinian lawmaker has said that Bush’s proposal of denying refugees’ right of return to their homeland violates UN resolution 194.
The resolution 194 calls for the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their original homes they were forced to flee in 1948.
US President George W. Bush said Thursday that Palestinian refugees should receive compensation for the loss of homes they were forced to flee during the establishment of the Zionist regime.
“Bush believes he has made progress in his new approach, but he never accounts for Palestinian rights in this new initiative,” Basam al-Salehi told Iran’s Alalam network Friday.
He also urged all Palestinian groups to insist on their right of return to their homeland and on all the related UN resolutions.
