Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is slated to hold crucial discussions with foreign ministers representing nations from the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to address the situation in Gaza.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is set to engage in discussions with several foreign ministers from the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) nations regarding the situation in the Gaza Strip. The meeting is scheduled to take place in Moscow on November 21, as confirmed by Maria Zakharova, the spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, on Monday.
“Tomorrow Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is scheduled to meet with delegations of a number of foreign ministers of the Arab League and OIC countries in Moscow, who will arrive in the Russian capital in accordance with the decision taken at the Riyadh summit to discuss the situation around the Gaza Strip,” Zakharova said.
Earlier today, Arab and Muslim ministers urged for an urgent ceasefire in Gaza during their visit to Beijing, marking the initial stage of a diplomatic tour aiming to advocate for an end to the Israeli aggression on Gaza and facilitate humanitarian aid to the devastated Palestinian enclave.
Additionally, the delegation intends to exert pressure on Western nations to reject “Israel’s” “self-defense” justification for its ongoing aggression against Palestinians.
The officials engaging in discussions with China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Monday represent countries such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Indonesia, Palestine, and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, among others.
“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 Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud.
