Emphasizing the paramount importance of safeguarding civilian lives in accordance with international humanitarian law, they called for the removal of all impediments hindering the delivery of vital humanitarian aid into the besieged enclave.

Furthermore, the leaders reiterated their unwavering support for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), urging all stakeholders to actively contribute to humanitarian efforts aimed at alleviating the suffering of Palestinian refugees.

Central to the discussions was the reaffirmation of the commitment to the two-state solution, with the recognition of the state of Palestine based on the borders of June 4, 1967, and East Jerusalem designated as its capital, in alignment with pertinent international resolutions. The ministers stressed the integral status of the Gaza Strip as part of the occupied Palestinian territory and vehemently rejected all acts of forced displacement.
