Mr. President,

  1. The Thai Government is deeply concerned about the latest round of violence in Gaza-Israel borders, which resulted in some 60 deaths and over 2,000 injuries among Palestinian civilians.
  1. We wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families.
  1. We also call on the parties concerned to put an immediate end to the violence, exercise their maximum restraints, and take steps to avoid any further escalation of the situation.
  1. We thus call on all sides to make the utmost efforts to work towards a durable solution to this long-standing conflict, which can only be achieved through peaceful negotiations.
  1. In this regard, we support the UNSG and the international community’s efforts to support Palestine and Israel to return to meaningful negotiations in order to achieve the two-State solution and realize the vision of a lasting peace for both people.

Thank you, Mr. President.
