Al-Sheikh received the French Consul General in Jerusalem

This Tuesday morning, I received the French Consul General in Jerusalem, Mr. Nicholas Cassiandis.

We discussed the humanitarian catastrophe occurring in the Gaza Strip, ways for calm and immediately end the ongoing aggression against the Strip, and ways to provide humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people in the Strip.

I stressed the rejection of the forced displacement of Palestinians outside their homeland and the necessity of protecting civilians.

The visit of French President Emmanuel Macron to the region was discussed today, and the French Republic’s rejection of the killing of civilians on both sides, the Palestinian and Israeli, was reaffirmed, and its support for a political path that guarantees security, calm and stability in the region on the basis of the two-state solution in accordance with international legitimacy.

I also welcomed the new French Consul General in the region, wishing him success in his mission.
