Ministry of Foreign Affairs Involvement

Regarding the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, His Excellency Sayyed Badr Al Busaidi, Minister of Foreign Affairs, contacted his counterparts, the foreign ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council. Their Excellencies stressed that the international community and international parties supporting efforts to resume the peace process have a fundamental responsibility to intervene immediately to stop the ongoing escalation in Palestine, open humanitarian corridors for the population in Gaza, and resort to the rules of international and humanitarian law.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is also following with interest and concern the ongoing escalation between the Palestinian and Israeli sides due to the continued illegal Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and the constant Israeli attacks against Palestinian cities and villages, which portends severe repercussions and an escalation of violence. The Omani Ministry of Foreign Affairs renewed alert and emphasis on the strategic necessity of finding a just, comprehensive, and lasting solution to the Palestinian issue based on the two-state solution and the right to self-determination for the Palestinian people to establish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Gulf Cooperation Council and European Union Cooperation

His Excellency Sayyed Badr bin Hamad Al Busaidi, Minister of Foreign Affairs, also confirmed that the Gulf Cooperation Council countries and the European Union countries are intensifying efforts at present to discuss the current developments between the Palestinians and the Israelis and seek to start a meaningful and new dialogue between all parties.

During a joint press conference following the meeting of the twenty-seventh session of the Joint Ministerial Council between the Gulf Cooperation Council and the European Union, which was hosted by the capital, Muscat, Al Busaidi said that the Gulf states agreed with the European Union on the necessity of establishing permanent and comprehensive peace in the Middle East, stressing that the ideal solution to end the Palestinian conflict is to select an independent state of Palestine.

Message from Sheikh Ahmed Al-Khalili
