— The best guarantee of Israel’s security is the creation of a Palestinian state, said in a statement Borrell, who returned from a trip to the Middle East, where he discussed the issue of Israel’s war with Hamas.
He emphasized that this was a “fundamental political conclusion” from his talks in the region.
According to Borrell, Israel should not occupy the Gaza Strip after the end of the war with Hamas, and control of the territory should be transferred to the Palestinian Authority.
— Despite the enormous challenges, we must expand our thoughts on the stabilization of the Gaza Strip and the future Palestinian state, he emphasized.
He also said there was a “sense of urgency” in the region due to the desperate humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip. — The UN Security Council resolution calling for immediate humanitarian pauses is a big step forward, but we must ensure its rapid implementation, he stressed.-
Another serious concern, in his opinion, is the exacerbation of the unstable situation in the West Bank and the involvement of other countries in the region in the conflict.
— Given the increase in violence against Palestinians by extremists and settlers, there is a real risk of escalation of the situation, warned the head of EU diplomacy.
