November 3, during the 10th summit of the Organization of Turkic States, President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, has pledged $1 million in humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian people, QazMonitor reports citing the press service of Akorda.
The Head of State emphasized the growing importance of mediation in addressing complex global challenges, given the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine in the north and the persistent tensions in the Middle East between Israel and Palestine. The situation is compounded by continued instability in Afghanistan and growing concerns over illegal migration in the West.
Today, the casualties of the confrontation are the peaceful residents of the Gaza Strip, especially children and the elderly. The primary objective is to ensure their safety. In this regard, I have made a decision to provide $1 million in humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people.
President Tokayev emphasized the unacceptability of resorting to violence and terrorism to address longstanding problems.
"Kazakhstan strongly condemns such methods. The escalation of the situation may lead to serious consequences. In this regard, we call for the resolution of any conflicts only through peaceful negotiations and diplomatic dialogue. For us, the preservation of the territorial integrity of all states and non-interference in their internal affairs are key priorities. It is important to strictly adhere to the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council and international law norms," stated the Head of State.
