Egypt voices concern over Israel’s decision suspending observer mission mandate

Egypt expressed on Sunday 3/2/2019 concern over an Israeli decision to suspend the mandate of an international observer mission in Hebron, southern the West Bank.

It is necessary to avoid any unilateral decisions that violate the Oslo II Accord 1995 and hinder efforts to resume negotiations between the Palestinian and Israeli sides and to establish just and overall peace based on the two-state solution and the relevant international legitimacy resolutions, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ahmed Hafez said.

The spokesman reiterated Egypt’s steadfast stance regarding the Palestinian issue and full support to the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.

Any measures that aim at changing the current arrangements or the status quo on the ground would create more tension and only curb efforts toward reaching the aspired peace, he stressed.
