The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) welcomed on Friday UN General Assembly's adoption of a historic resolution, with a sweeping majority, stressing that Palestine's state is qualified to get a full member and granting it additional rights.

In a statement, the OIC said this resolution expressed an international consensus on backing the legitimate rights of Palestinian people, including self-determination, freedom, justice, independence and the need of ending the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.

It affirmed its absolute support to the legitimate rights of Palestine's state in embodying its political and legal position at the UN, like to the rest of the world's states, as a gain that should have been implemented since decades, according to the statement.

It referred to historic, legal and political rights of Palestinian people to their land confirmed by the relevant UN resolutions, in addition to the official recognition of 144 states of Palestine's state, which has full membership at dozens of international organisations and agreements.
