Vietnam urges immediate stop of violence in Gaza

Vietnam has urged all parties concerned to immediately and unconditionally stop all acts of violence in the Gaza Strip where unjustifiable violence and attacks against both Palestinian and Israeli civilian populations have mounted to unacceptable levels over the past few days.

Addressing an urgent meeting on the escalating conflicts in the Middle East held in New York on Dec. 31, Deputy Representative of Vietnam to the UN Security Council, Ambassador Bui The Giang condemned the indiscriminate attacks against civilians in the Gaza Strip.

“We denounce the excessive and disproportionate use of force by Israel in a collective punishment of the population in Gaza that has resulted in the death and injury of hundreds of Palestinians, including women and children and widespread destruction of local property and infrastructure,” he said.

The ambassador also raised concern about the inevitable deterioration of the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and its doubled collateral impact on more than 1.5 million Palestinians therein if the Israeli military operations continue in the coming days.

Stressing that there is no military solution to the conflict, the Vietnamese diplomat demanded that Israel open all border crossings to allow for the urgent delivery of food, medical aid and fuel to the Gazans, the evacuation of the injured and the unhindered access of humanitarian workers.

He also called upon UN agencies, particularly the UN Relief and Work Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine Refugees in the Near East and other humanitarian organisations to extend further emergency assistance to the civilian population in Gaza .

Vietnam welcomes the joint efforts by the Palestinian Authority, Egypt and Jordan to strengthen inter-Palestinian political dialogues and reconciliation, Giang said, reconfirming the country’s support to the important role played by the Quartet, the League of Arab States, and regional countries in brokering a truce between the parties concerned and resuming the calm in Gaza .

He also said he backed an enforceable resolution that can help prevent the situation from further risky escalation and bring the peace process back to the direction set out in the Road Map, the principle of “land for peace,” the Arab Peace Initiative, the Annapolis Joint Understanding and the relevant Security Council resolutions, including Resolution 1850./.
