Together with the international trade union movement and, in particular, with the trade union centres of the Arab region,
the GCTU intends to further contribute towards the protection of the Palestinian people’ interests, realisation of its
right to independent development, and safeguarding peace and security in the Middle East.
We wish participants in the Conference all success in their efforts to strengthen the movement of solidarity with the
just struggle of Palestine’s workers and people in order to reach a peaceful Arab-Israeli settlement.
