Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah announced on Saturday the launch of the work of the ministerial committee tasked with mobilizing international action to end the war on Gaza.
The committee will kick off its work from China.
The committee was formed at the Arab-Islamic summit that was held in Riyadh last week and that focused on the conflict in Gaza.
Officials at the summit decided to exert pressure to kick off a serious political process that would lead to lasting and comprehensive peace in the Palestinian territories in line with relevant international resolutions.
The foreign minister of Saudi Arabia and his counterparts in several countries, as well as the secretary-generals of the Arab League and Organization of Islamic Cooperation, were tasked with leading the efforts of the committee.
Earlier on Saturday, Prince Faisal met with High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell on the sidelines of the Manama Dialogue 2023 held in Bahrain.
The officials discussed the developments in Gaza with Prince Faisal reiterating the Kingdom's rejection of the continued military escalation and violations committed by Israeli forces against civilians, stressing the importance of stopping the escalation and forced displacement of Palestinians from Gaza Strip.
Prince Faisal stressed the importance of securing urgent humanitarian corridors for sending relief assistance to children, women and civilians in Gaza, and called on the international community to take a stance against all flagrant violations of international humanitarian law practiced by the Israeli forces against civilians in Gaza.
