The United Arab Emirates ( UAE) on Monday stressed that current peace efforts being made be stepped up towards the "reinvigoration" of Arab-Israeli peace negotiations.

The statement came as Ahmed Al-Jarman, UAE's ambassador to the UN, addressed the General Assembly meeting to mark the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

"We hope that peace efforts being made currently are strengthened towards the reinvigoration of Arab-Israeli peace negotiations in the region, in fulfillment of commitments under international law and the resolutions of international legitimacy, " Al-Jarman said.

Al-Jarman voiced the UAE's support for International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, particularly their right to an independent state.

"Today, after more than six decades of the issuance of this decision, we find that this case remains unresolved and it is going through a critical and very serious stage in spite of all international and regional sustained efforts made so far," Al- Jarman said.

The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is celebrated each year on or around Nov. 29, the anniversary of the adoption of Security Council Resolution 181, which attempted to establish an Arab and Jewish state in the region.
