Czech Defense Minister calls for Czech Republic's withdrawal from the UN over its position on Israel
Czech Defense Minister Jana Černochová has expressed her belief that the country should withdraw from the United Nations. The reason for this is the UN General Assembly resolution, which called for a "truce" between Israel and Hamas, but did not condemn the terrorist attack.
The official expressed her opinion on her page on the social network X (exTwitter). She recalled that three weeks ago, members of the group killed more than 1,400 Israelis, more than al-Qaeda militants in the United States during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack.
At the same time, Černochová noted, only 14 countries, including the Czech Republic, spoke out clearly and unequivocally against this unprecedented attack by Hamas terrorists.
"I am ashamed of the UN. In my opinion, the Czech Republic has no place in an organization that supports terrorists and does not respect the fundamental right to self-defense. I propose to withdraw from it," the minister explained her position.
The resolution in question was adopted by the UN General Assembly on October 27. Ukraine, along with 44 other countries, abstained from voting. The document was supported by 120 states.
Representatives of 14 countries spoke against it. Among them were the United States, as well as Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Fiji, Guatemala, Hungary, Israel, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, and Tonga.
