Beijing, The Gulf Observer: The international community needs to shoulder responsibility to stop Israel’s violations in Gaza, Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said on Monday during a meeting between China’s foreign minister and ministers from Arab and Islamic countries.
The Saudi foreign minister and his counterparts from Arab and Islamic nations arrived in Beijing on Monday on the first leg of a tour to the permanent member states of the United Nations’ Security Council to push for an immediate ceasefire and to allow humanitarian aid into the territory.
During a meeting with diplomats in Beijing, Prince Faisal called for more international efforts to end the war on Gaza and save lives.
“We are here to send a clear signal: that is we must immediately stop the fighting and the killings, we must immediately deliver humanitarian supplies to Gaza,” said the foreign minister.
“We aspire to cooperate with China and other countries that understand the seriousness of the situation to end the war,” Prince Faisal added.
He pointed to the dangerous escalations in Gaza that require effective international action to end the violence, which has so far killed about 12,000 people.
