I convey to you the greetings of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, and his wishes for the success of the work of this exceptional summit, which is being held at a difficult time in the Gaza Strip.
We would like to thank His Excellency the President of the Republic of South Africa for hosting the summit and inviting the Kingdom to participate in it. Gaza is witnessing brutal crimes against innocent civilians and the destruction of facilities and infrastructure, including health facilities and places of worship. It requires a collective effort to stop this humanitarian catastrophe, which continues to worsen day after day, and to develop decisive solutions to it. We renew our categorical affirmation of our rejection of these operations that have claimed the lives of thousands of children, women and the elderly, and we demand that military operations be stopped immediately and that humanitarian corridors be provided to relieve civilians to enable international humanitarian organizations to perform their role. The Kingdom has made unremitting efforts since the beginning of the events to help and protect civilians in the Gaza Strip by providing humanitarian and relief aid by air and sea, and launching urgent popular donation campaigns that have so far exceeded half a billion Saudi riyals. The Kingdom also called for an extraordinary joint Arab and Islamic summit to be held in Riyadh on November 11, 2023, to discuss the Israeli aggression.
The summit issued a collective resolution condemning the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip and rejecting its justification under any pretext, and immediately imposing the entry of humanitarian aid convoys including food, medicine and fuel into the Gaza Strip, rejecting the forced displacement of the Palestinian people, and condemning Israel’s destruction of hospitals in the Strip, calling on all countries By stopping the export of weapons and ammunition to Israel, and beginning to move on behalf of all member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the League of Arab States to formulate an international position on the aggression against Gaza. And pressure to launch a serious political process to achieve a lasting and comprehensive peace in accordance with approved international references.
The Kingdom’s firm and firm position has been and remains that there is no way to achieve security and stability in Palestine except through implementing international resolutions related to the two-state solution to enable the Palestinian people to achieve their legitimate rights to establish an independent, sovereign Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital. We appreciate all the efforts that will be made, especially by the permanent members of the Security Council, aimed at reaching a just peace for all. We appreciate the role and effort made by the BRICS group to help the brotherly Palestinian people. We reiterate our thanks to His Excellency the President and the assembled leaders, hoping that this summit will achieve the noble goals for which it was held. Thank you.
