    Tuesday, June 11, 2024   No comments

The foreign ministers of the BRICS member states condemned the Israeli attacks against the Palestinians and declared their support for Palestine's full membership in the United Nations. This came in a joint statement issued after their meeting in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod on Monday evening, which was published on a Russian Foreign Ministry's website.

The statement explained that the ongoing conflicts around the world are "worrying", stressing the need to commit to peaceful resolution of disputes through diplomacy, dialogue, consultation, coordination and cooperation.

It also affirmed support for all efforts that help peaceful resolution of crises, stressing "the need to respect international humanitarian law in conflicts and provide humanitarian assistance as stipulated in United Nations resolutions".

The statement expressed deep concern over "the deterioration of the situation in the occupied Palestinian territories and the unprecedented Israeli escalation of violence in Gaza, which has caused casualties and destroyed civilian infrastructure".

In this context, the ministers called for the effective implementation of relevant UN General Assembly resolutions and Security Council Resolution 2720, regarding the safe and unhindered delivery of humanitarian assistance to civilians in the Gaza Strip.

The statement also expressed deep concern over the increasing Israeli attacks on Rafah, noting that the ministers "condemned the Israeli military operation in Rafah and its consequences, which directly affect the lives of civilians and the forced displacement of Palestinians, and reiterated their rejection of any attempt to displace or transfer them to another location, and warned of the effects of the increasing tensions extending to the rest of the Middle East region."

The statement stressed "support for Palestine's full membership in the United Nations, and commitment to the vision of a two-state solution, including an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital."

It is worth noting that "BRICS" is a bloc founded in 2006 and includes China, Brazil, Russia, India and South Africa, before Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran and the UAE joined it in early 2024.
