For his part, Parliament Speaker Gallegos spoke of El Salvador's support for the Palestinian cause and finding a just solution based on ending the occupation and stopping the suffering of the Palestinians, as well as the establishment of the State of Palestine on the basis of international legitimacy and the right to self-determination.
