Putin’s ‘Palestine’ call to the international community

Russian President Putin spoke about the situation in Gaza at the online summit attended by BRICS leaders and leaders of countries invited to become BRICS members.

Putin stressed that the summit organized at the initiative of South Africa was held at the right time due to the difficult situation in the Gaza Strip and said: “The death of thousands of people, the mass deportation of civilians and the resulting humanitarian disaster are extremely worrying. “. he said.

Putin claimed that many children also lost their lives, saying: “This is a terrible thing, but when you see children operated on without anesthesia, this really triggers certain emotions.” saying.

Putin blamed the US for what happened in the region and said: “All these events are actually a direct result of the US desire to monopolize the mediation position in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and obstruct the activities of the Middle East Quartet, which consists of international mediators.” he made the assessment of it.


Underlining that attempts to resolve the “Palestinian knot” single-handedly will not be beneficial, Putin said: “Due to the sabotage of UN resolutions providing for the establishment of the independent and sovereign states of Israel and Palestine and their peaceful coexistence , Many generations of Palestinians grew up with a feeling of injustice against their own people. “And the Israelis cannot fully guarantee the security of their own state.” said.

Noting that Russia has a coherent approach to the situation at hand, Putin said: “We call on the international community to reduce tensions, establish a ceasefire and join forces to find a political solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “The BRICS countries and countries in the region can play a key role in this work.” he said.

Putin stated that the ceasefire is also necessary for the evacuation of civilians and prisoners in the Gaza Strip:

“The most urgent task is to achieve a truly sustainable and long-term ceasefire. “It is important to prevent other states from being drawn into war in the Middle East and prevent the geographical expansion of the conflict, while at the same time maintaining peace between the sects.”

Putin noted that Russia will hold the BRICS presidency next year and that they will take several initiatives to establish contacts on the Palestine-Israel issue during this period.
