ICRC Hails Iran’s Efforts at Gaza Peace

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) praised Iran for its political efforts to address the crisis in Gaza and relieve the pains of Palestinians.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and ICRC President Mirjana Spoljaric Egger held a meeting on the sidelines of the 55th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva on Monday.

Lauding Iran’s diplomatic efforts to help end the war on Gaza, Spoljaric Egger expressed deep concern about the dire humanitarian situation in the Palestinian enclave.

Highlighting the ICRC’s attempts to mobilize humanitarian supports for Gaza, she said the international community has unfortunately failed to fulfill its humanitarian duties in this regard.

She then stressed the need for the urgent delivery of aids to Gaza, voiced concern about the critical conditions in Rafah, and noted that the ICRC will make every effort to avert a humanitarian catastrophe there.

For his part, Amirabdollahian expressed gratitude to the ICRC for its responsible efforts to settle the “complicated and worrying” situation in Palestine.

“Unfortunately, the wrong political attitudes have so far rendered the political efforts to end the Gaza crisis futile,” the Iranian foreign minister deplored.

He also took a swipe at the US for raising the idea of reducing, not ending, the war on Gaza.

Dismissing the US officials’ comments about the post-war conditions in Gaza, Amirabdollahian said the leaders of the Palestinian leaders have agreed on democratic ways and reached a political consensus on administering Gaza after the war.

He also reaffirmed Iran’s commitment to the continuation of efforts at ending the Israeli war on Gaza.

At least 29,690 Palestinians have been killed and 69,870 injured in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7.
