He said, “The future of the Gaza Strip cannot be separated from the future of the West Bank. This future must be built by supporting the Palestinian Authority, which must be renewed and returned to the Gaza Strip as soon as possible.” “
The French foreign minister, who is on his first visit to the territory since taking up his post in January, stressed, “I repeat, Gaza is Palestinian territory.”
Sigourney called for “a comprehensive political solution with two countries living together in peace”, which requires the peace process to “immediately” restart, he said.
He stressed that “without a political solution, a just and lasting peace cannot be achieved in the Middle East. This is our position and this is our analysis of the situation.”
Sigourney said in Cairo yesterday evening, Sunday, that he rejects any “forced displacement” of Gazans to Egypt.
