An Arab-Islamic-European meeting announced, on Sunday evening, “support for ending the Israeli war” that has been ongoing in the Gaza Strip since October 7, 2023, and the necessity of “implementing the two-state solution.”

This came during a meeting of the ministerial committee assigned by the joint extraordinary Arab-Islamic summit regarding developments in the Gaza Strip, with foreign ministers and representatives of European countries, in the Belgian capital, Brussels.

The meeting was chaired by Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan and his Norwegian counterpart, Espen Barth.

The meeting discussed "the urgent need to end the war in Gaza and take the necessary steps to implement the two-state solution."

The ministerial committee was formed in November 2023, by decision of the extraordinary Arab-Islamic summit hosted by the Saudi capital, Riyadh at the time, to discuss the Israeli war on Gaza.

According to the statement, the meeting was attended by, in addition to Saudi Arabia, ministers and representatives of Palestine, Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain, the Emirates, Qatar, Algeria, Turkey, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Latvia, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and Britain, in addition to the Organization Islamic cooperation.

The meeting supported "efforts to reach an immediate ceasefire and release prisoners (Palestinians in Israel) and hostages (Israelis in Gaza)."

He also supported "ending the war in the Gaza Strip and all illegal unilateral measures and violations in the occupied Palestinian territories, including controlling the Rafah crossing, and addressing the catastrophic humanitarian crisis."

The meeting discussed "concrete steps towards establishing a Palestinian state in the context of a two-state solution, and moving to a political path that supports a sustainable solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

The meeting stressed "the importance of the international community's recognition of the Palestinian state, to adopt a comprehensive approach towards a reliable and irreversible path to implementing the two-state solution."

This comes as Brussels witnessed, on Sunday, a meeting of international partners on Palestine, which was chaired by Norway in its capacity as Chair of the Contact Committee dedicated to coordinating international aid provided to the Palestinian people, and hosted by the European Union.
