King of Bahrain Hamad bin Isa voiced deep appreciation to President Abdel Fattah El Sisi for calling for an important regional and international summit to address the Palestinian crisis.
In his speech at the Cairo Peace Summit on Saturday, he said the Middle East will not enjoy stability without securing the rights of the Palestinians until reaching durable, comprehensive and just peace in the region.
He underlined Bahrain’s steadfast stand on supporting the rights of the Palestinians for establishing an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 border with Al Quds as its capital.
He underlined the urgent need for containing the dangerous crisis in the Gaza Strip in light of the terrible suffering of the Palestinians under unabated ferocious Israeli bombardment.
He called for continued diplomatic efforts by all regional and international parties to halt the escalation, end the military operations and protect civilians.
He also called for releasing all captives and detainees and facilitating assistance access into the enclave in line with international law.
He stressed rejection of evacuating the Palestinians from their homeland.
He said the summit underlined Egypt’s pivotal role in supporting the Palestinian cause and protecting Arab national security.
He expressed confidence that the summit will come up with a fruitful outcome that would lead to peace and security.
