Jordanian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ayman Safadi has said the Arab-Islamic Liaison Committee will press for a permanent Gaza ceasefire at the upcoming UN Security Council meeting on Wednesday, Al Jazeera reports.

“If this decision is not taken, the Security Council is responsible for perpetuating this barbarity represented by the Israeli aggression against our people in Gaza.”

“Security will only be achieved by settling the conflict and the two-state solution,” he said during a joint press conference with his Portuguese and Slovenian counterparts, João Gomez Cravinho, and Tanja Fajon.

“Israel will not enjoy security by killing the Palestinians … This year is considered the bloodiest for Palestinians in more than 10 years.

“Israel attacks anyone who does not agree with its policy, and it cannot remain above international law. We all want this truce to turn into a permanent ceasefire and a complete end to this aggression.”
