During these discussions, the GCC foreign ministers emphasized the urgency of an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and safe passage for the delivery of food and medical aid to the Palestinians. They deliberated on initiatives to prevent infringements of international law, particularly humanitarian law, in the Gaza Strip, and to support the peace process to safeguard the rights of the Palestinian people, including the establishment of an independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
