“Top UAE Diplomat Advocates Two-State Solution as Sole Path to Peace in Israel-Palestine Crisis”

Dr. Anwar Gargash, Diplomatic Adviser to the President of the UAE, addressed the 10th edition of the Abu Dhabi Strategic Debate, emphasizing the crucial role of a political process in achieving a lasting two-state solution for Palestine and Israel.

Setback Amid Positive Momentum

Discussing the recent upheaval caused by the October 7 attack from Hamas and the subsequent Israeli response, Dr. Gargash identified the event as a major disruption, derailing the positive momentum towards stability and prosperity in the region.

Humanitarian Aid Amid Crisis: Diplomat

Under the theme ‘Tarahum – for Gaza,’ the UAE has been actively providing relief aid to Palestinians affected by the conflict in the Gaza Strip. Dr. Gargash condemned attacks on Israeli civilians while expressing deep concern over the disproportionate response from the Israeli government.

Urgency for Ceasefire and Relief

Highlighting the urgent need for a humanitarian ceasefire and substantial relief in Gaza, Dr. Gargash stressed the importance of preventing the conflict from spreading regionally. He underlined the horrific impact of the ongoing war on both Israeli and Palestinian communities.

The Call for a Two-State Solution: Diplomat

Dr. Gargash called for a political commitment to a two-state solution, emphasizing the necessity of an independent Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital. He urged the international community, especially the United States, to support this political process.

Beyond Regional Conflicts

While acknowledging the critical time for the region, Dr. Gargash reminded the world not to lose sight of global challenges, particularly climate change. He highlighted the upcoming UN climate conference (COP28) hosted by the UAE as an opportunity for leaders to demonstrate political courage and values, necessary not only for climate change but also for achieving peace and stability in the region.
