Double-sided policies make efforts in Gaza fruitless: Amirabdollahian

New York, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian has expressed concern over the humanitarian situation in Gaza, saying the wrong, double-sided and politicized approaches have hampered political efforts aimed at ending the war.

He made the remarks in a meeting held in New York with the President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Mirjana Spoljaric Egger.

Amirabdollahian is in New York to attend the United Nations Security Council meeting on the situation in the Middle East and the issue of Palestine and to hold diplomatic talks.

In his remarks, the Iranian foreign minister said what has happened in Gaza is a human tragedy, and Netanyahu’s threat to invade Rafah could worsen the aspects of the catastrophe.

He further warned about the expansion of the conflict, adding that the Islamic Republic has always followed the policy of restraint.

Elsewhere in the meeting, the ICRC president appreciated Iran’s endeavor to help cease the war in Gaza while expressing deep concern about the situation in the strip.

ICRC makes its all-out effort to dispatch humanitarian aid to Gaza and prevent a humanitarian tragedy, she noted.

Regarding the worrisome conditions in regional countries including Palestine, she emphasized that the international body would make serious efforts to contact all influential sides capable of managing the situation.

Since the start of the war in Gaza in October 2023, more than 34,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children, have been killed in Gaza.
