14.03.2014 / 14:39
The Czech Republic watches with concern the current escalation of the situation in the Gaza strip and Israel.
We strongly condemn the recent wave of rocket attacks carried out by the militant organizations in the Gaza Strip targeting innocent civilians in Israel. These violent actions must be stopped immediately.
The Czech Republic supports the ongoing negotiations on peace in the Middle East and the diplomatic efforts of the State Secretary John Kerry. We are convinced that only the direct peace negotiations can lead to a solution based on two states living side by side in peace and security.
