Al-Malki said "Palestine would work very hard to unite world efforts as well as regional and global groups to serve humanity, thus contributing to the reduction of all negative phenomena that impede the rights of peoples and deprive them and their countries of progress and growth".
He said that 16 resolutions on the Palestinian issue would be voted on after the main committees in the UN General Assembly end their work.
Australia was the only other country to vote against the resolution.
"The General Assembly decided today to provide additional rights and privileges of participation to the State of Palestine when it assumes its position as chair of the "Group of 77" developing nations", the release said on Tuesday.
Wednesdays' General Assembly vote, he said, represented "a challenge that will be turned into an opportunity for the benefit of group members and the entire world".
Earlier Wednesday, the UN General Assembly voted in favor of a draft resolution granting Palestine the G77's rotating chairmanship for 2019.
He said that the worldwide community's vote, among them most of the European countries, in favor of the resolution is recognition of the status of Palestine and recognition of the need to end the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territory, as well as recognizes the right of Palestine to full membership of the United Nations.
He said it was an expression of respect for the decision of the Group of 77 and China to elect the State of Palestine as its chair for the year 2019 by consensus, following the endorsement by the Asia-Pacific group of the State of Palestine's candidature, also by consensus. Israel captured those territories in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed East Jerusalem in a move not recognized internationally.
"Today's U.N. mistake undermines the prospects for peace by encouraging the illusion held by some Palestinian leaders that they can advance their goals without direct peace negotiations", The outgoing USA ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, said in a statement following the vote. "The only way to give the Palestinian people the State they deserve and the Israelis the peace they are entitled to is through a negotiated two-State solution", said the representative of the United Kingdom.
"The Palestinians are not a U.N. member state or any state at all", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Tuesday.
