The government of Bangladesh expresses support for the initiative put forward by the United States to achieve a ceasefire, release of hostages and restoration of peace in the Gaza Strip.

"We second the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the UAE, Qatar, and Egypt to agree on an initiative that guarantees a permanent ceasefire and the adequate delivery of aid to all parts of the Gaza Strip aiming to alleviate the suffering of the people in the Strip," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

"We also commend the mediation efforts undertaken by the Arab countries and the United States in this regard."

While a ceasefire, and the immediate and complete withdrawal of Israeli occupation forces from the Gaza Strip are essential, Bangladesh firmly believes that a two-state solution is the only viable path to ensuring lasting peace and security in the region.

International efforts to achieve a peaceful resolution of the conflict is crucial.

“We urge the international community to advocate and work for the end of the hostilities and support the effort to rebuild Gaza.”

“We also urge the members of the UN Security Council to grant the State of Palestine full membership in the United Nations immediately, enabling the Palestinian people to realize their inalienable right to statehood,” read the statement.
