I want to thank President al-Sisi for his initiative. This important event has helped lay the foundation for what we hope to be a durable ceasefire that must be further consolidated.
I also want to thank Foreign Minister Shoukri for his continuing leadership.
Foreign Minister Brende, thank you for your country’s leadership and commitment to lasting peace in the Middle East.
We are here to show our solidarity.
We are here to stand with the people of Gaza who have endured a terrible summer of suffering.
