Tuesday March 26, 2024

Mogadishu (HOL) - The Somali government has welcomed the United Nations Security Council's (UNSC) demand for an immediate ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas in the Gaza Strip and the release of all hostages.

In a press release issued on Monday, the federal government stated that the Security Council's adoption of Resolution No. 2728 is a commendable step towards fostering peace and stability in the region.

"As a responsible member of the international community, Somalia urges robust support and commitment from all stakeholders to ensure the success of this resolution," the statement said.

Somalia vehemently advocates for an end to the conflict in the Gaza Strip, the safe return of displaced people to their homes, and the realization of a viable two-state solution. The statement emphasizes that sustainable peace and security in the region can only be achieved through genuine dialogue and mutual respect.

The resolution calls for an immediate ceasefire for the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, which ends in two weeks, and also demands the release of all hostages seized in the Hamas-led attack on southern Israel on October 7.
