Nigeria backs Biden’s Gaza ceasefire proposal

Releated Post


Nigeria has thrown its weight behind the United States proposed ceasefire between Israel and Palestine.


West Bank has been under Israeli siege since October 7 retaliation attack following the invasion of Israel by Hamas.


The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Yusuf Tuggar, also called global action to de-escalate violence in the region.


Ambassador Tuggar in a statement by his media aide, Alkasim Abdulkadir stated, “The Biden Ceasefire proposal should be embraced by world leaders and the totality of the international community— to intensify efforts towards a speedy resolution of the conflict, and the immediate cessation of the attendant extreme violence in Gaza and all other innocent civilians affected by the conflict.


“Equally important is the continuous, sufficient and unhindered provision of lifesaving humanitarian supplies and services for civilians.”


The minister also assured US of Nigeria’s support to bring about a complete cessation of violence and an end to the senseless loss of human lives and manmade humanitarian crises.


He stressed: “We are concerned that the ongoing carnage is setting a bad precedent for the international system of justice and are mindful that justice is antithetical to revenge. The Biden plan presents a clear path towards progress and the conditions required for peace.


“President Joe Biden’s proposal includes a deal that will lead to a permanent ceasefire, a surge in humanitarian aid, the release of hostages, and a major reconstruction plan to rebuild homes, schools, and hospitals. Nigeria believes the Biden plan is the best way forward for all parties and can prevent any repetition of the tragic deaths on 8 June of more than 200 people at the Nuseirat refugee camp.”
