Foreign Minister Safadi said the war on Gaza had turned “Israel into a pariah state”.

He shared his comments during a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

He added that Netanyahu must not be allowed to lead the region into “destruction”.

The Israeli leader has been “disrupting the horizon for peace and is leading the region into a regional war,” he proclaimed.

Egyptian Foreign Minister at WEF

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry shared the panel discussion with the Jordanian Foreign Minister at the World Economic Forum (WEF).

He explained that Hamas leaders have signaled readiness to abandon armed resistance “if there is a clear commitment to establishing a Palestinian state.”

“The armed struggle and resistance to occupation are legitimate, and as long as there is occupation there will be a justification for resisting it under international law,” he alarmed.

The top diplomat called for setting the conditions “that lead to Hamas being a partner in the [political] process and participating in establishing the Palestinian state.”

“Palestinian voters are entrusted with determining the role that Hamas can play,” he further spelled.
