Ramallah, Feb 6 (IANS) The Palestinian presidency has called on the US to force Israel to stop its “aggression and war” against the besieged coastal enclave of the Gaza Strip.
Nabil Abu Rudeineh, the spokesman for the Palestinian presidency, said in a press release on Monday that the US must “press Israel to stop its war in Gaza” to prevent the conflict from further affecting regional security, reported the Xinhua news agency.
He noted that countries around the world should take practical and swift measures to save the region from the mud of the Gaza conflict.
Steps must be taken under resolutions affirming international legitimacy to end Israel’s occupation and establish the State of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital on the 1967 borders, Aby Rudeineh added.
He urged the United States to establish a clear mechanism and commit to specific steps and international guarantees within a specific timeframe to recognize Palestinian statehood.
“Positive statements are no longer enough, and this is the opportune and decisive moment to save the region from the scourge of endless wars,” said the spokesman.
