MOSCOW, August 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict depends on Israel, Palestinian Ambassador to Russia Fayed Mustafa said on Friday.
He was speaking after a commemorative ceremony for the victims of Israel’s aggression in Gaza.
“Now everything depends on Israel. We hope that a reasonable decision will be made. We also hope for an end to the Gaza blockade that has been on for more than seven years,” Mustafa said.
“During the talks in Egypt, Palestine gave Israel a list of requirements for the resolution of the conflict. Now we are waiting for their response. We hope that Israel will agree with us,” he said, adding that all requirements were “humanitarian and concerned the life of ordinary people”.
He praised Egypt’s role in fostering dialogue. “We hope that Egypt will continue its efforts towards conflict resolution,” the ambassador added.
He thanked the ambassadors of Saudi Arabia, Libya, Mauritania, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, the League of Arab States, Lebanon, and Bahrain for supporting the Palestinian people.
“Israel’s invasion should be ended. If this happens, Israel and the whole region will live in peace,” Mustafa said.
