BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Marking the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, the president of Sri Lanka reiterated his support of the "just struggle of the Palestinian people" toward statehood.

"Peace ensures security and that fundamental factor underscores the urgency of resolving the Middle-East conflict," a statement from the Sri Lankan president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, said Tuesday.

"This long standing unresolved conflict is a challenge to the values and aspirations of humanity.

"Having personally associated myself with the cause of Palestine for nearly forty years, I reiterate that the Palestinian (people) have been denied their basic human rights for far too long and renew the consistent call" of the Sri Lankan government for a two-state solution, Rajapaksa said in a statement.
