He pointed out that the UAE has sought and continues to seek an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, and has exerted efforts and endeavours at all levels - through its non-permanent membership in the UN Security Council - to pressure the adoption of UN resolutions to ceasefire, allow the flow of humanitarian aid to the Strip through safe and sustainable corridors, and in sufficient quantities needed by the people in the Strip.
He also highlighted the role of the UAE through its contributions and efforts in international forums and in all diplomatic communications and meetings, in order to create a political horizon for a peaceful solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict based on the two-state solution, the need to stop the escalation, and preserve the lives of civilians.
During the meeting, the Committee approved the draft resolutions it adopted on the Palestinian issue, which will be submitted to the Political Committee of the Union. (ANI/WAM)
