Egypt welcomes UNSC adoption of resolution calling for ceasefire in Gaza despite its limited time frame


CAIRO: Egypt has welcomed the Security Council’s adoption of a resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza for the first time since the beginning of the crisis despite its imbalance and limited time frame, according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

‘The Arab Republic of Egypt welcomes the Security Council’s adoption of a resolution demanding a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip during the month of Ramadan – for the first time since the beginning of the crisis and following the Security Council’s repeated inability to reach a resolution demanding a permanent ceasefire,’ read the foreign ministry statement.

“Egypt calls for the immediate implementation of the ceasefire in a way that opens the way for dealing with all elements of the crisis,” it added.
