Colombian president celebrates resolution on ceasefire in Gaza

Bogota, Mar 25 (Prensa Latina) Colombian President Gustavo Petro celebrated the adoption for the first time of a resolution at the United Nations Security Council, calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

“At last a resolution for a ceasefire in Gaza comes out of the United Nations Council unanimously. I invite the nations of the world that if Israel breaks this ceasefire, diplomatic relations with that country will be severed,” the president wrote on his X account.

The expected draft, presented by all ten non-permanent members, was approved by 14 votes in favor, none against and the only abstention of the United States.

The highest body for peace and security on the planet expects the end of hostilities to come into force on Monday and become the preamble to a “lasting and sustainable ceasefire”.

Just during this day, UN Chief António Guterres insisted on his call for a ceasefire, recognizing that there will be no sustainable humanitarian solution with a war as bloody as this one.

“The effective delivery of humanitarian aid requires an immediate ceasefire. The need is urgent,” he said from Amman, the capital of Jordan, where he visited the Wihdat camp for Palestinian refugees.
