Qatari Foreign Minister, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, has disclosed ongoing mediation efforts between Israel and Hamas, emphasizing 'Good progress' in recent days.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, also the Prime Minister of Qatar, shared these insights during a joint press conference in Doha alongside Josep Borrell, the EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
The statements, released by the Qatari Foreign Ministry on the X social media platform, highlighted discussions on cooperative measures between Qatar and the EU. The aim is to collaboratively address the multifaceted Gaza crisis, encompassing political and humanitarian dimensions.
In their Sunday meeting, Minister Al Thani and the EU official prioritized an immediate cease-fire, urging an end to reprisal operations and indiscriminate attacks on the Gaza Strip. The minister underscored the significance of facilitating the inflow of humanitarian aid and assistance into Gaza, expressing optimism about a prompt agreement. The overarching goal remains achieving a lasting and peaceful resolution to the conflict.
Qatar, actively engaged since the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas conflict on October 7, has persistently worked toward mediating between the conflicting parties. The country aims to secure the release of hostages held by Hamas and de-escalate tensions in Gaza. These diplomatic efforts signify a commitment to fostering stability and peace in the region.
