South Africa satisfied with Security Council resolution on Gaza

Pretoria, Mar 26 (Prensa Latina) South African President Cyril Ramaphosa today endorsed the recent UN Security Council decision calling for a temporary "immediate ceasefire" in the Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip.

We must seize the opportunity presented by this Security Council resolution to create a firm basis for a permanent ceasefire and the resumption of negotiations, Ramaphosa said in a statement to that effect.

“We need to stop the killing and start walking on the path to peace,” the President stressed.

In the text, the South African president added that South Africa remains concerned that in more than five months since the escalation of the conflict, thousands of people have lost their lives, including more than 13 thousand children.

Therefore, the President stressed, “it is vital that the parties comply with the Security Council”.

The day before the UN Security Council Resolution 2728 (2024) demanded an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which will end in two weeks.

The United States abstained in the vote and the other 14 members of the Council voted all in favor and none against.

The resolution is the first of its kind after nearly six months of war.
