Justice and Constitutional Development Minister, Ronald Lamola, is expected to lead a South African delegation to the High Level Conference titled the “Call for Action: Urgent Humanitarian Response to Gaza”.
The conference will be held in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in the Middle East on Tuesday.
“The High Level Conference will among others, articulate on how the minimum requirements for ensuring sustained, predictable and sufficient supplies of humanitarian assistance can reach into and throughout Gaza via land and sea routes in line with Security Council Resolution 2720 (2023).
“[The] High Level Conference is also expected to outline the minimum requirements for ensuring conducive conditions for the safe and effective distribution of aid inside Gaza, including those related to the protection of civilians and humanitarian staff. This is in line with previous calls for an immediate ceasefire and based on existing constraints to the safe and effective delivery of aid,” the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development said in a statement.
The conference is expected to be co-chaired by His Majesty King Abdullah Il bin Al Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi of the Arab Republic of Egypt and Secretary General of the United Nations António Guterres.
“South Africa remains committed towards advancing efforts to find a coordinated and sustainable solution to the dire situation in Palestine and addressing and ending the large-scale suffering of the people of Gaza is of utmost importance to the country.
“Minister Lamola says the South African government remains committed to advocate for peace in Gaza expressing the country’s determination to seek justice through all available international legal channels. He adds that South Africa is dedicated to upholding universal human rights and supporting the Palestinian people’s right to sovereignty, peace and secure life,” the department concluded. – SAnews.gov.za
