Greek Deputy Premier/Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos held telephone talks on Friday with the Foreign Minister of the Palestinian Authority Riyad Al-Malki – currently touring Latin America – to discuss the latest developments in the Gaza Strip.

Venizelos expressed his deep concern at the interruption of the ceasefire and underscored the need for both sides to agree directly on a permanent truce and return to the peace talks, in order to end the bloodshed and the humanitarian crisis.

He also briefed Al-Malki on the Foreign Ministry’s decision regarding the provision of humanitarian aid in the amount of 500,000 euros through the UNRWA to alleviate the situation in Gaza, reiterating Greece’s willingness to host and treat wounded Palestinians, particularly children.

Al-Malki expressed his gratitude and asked of Venizelos that Greece continues to support the Egyptian proposal, as well as the meetings in Cairo with the immediate aim of returning to a ceasefire. The two ministers also discussed the letter Al-Malki addressed to his European colleagues a few days ago, agreeing that it would be preferable for there to be a joint European response to the letter.
