Morocco has expressed its deep concern at the deterioration of the situation and the outbreak of military action in the Gaza Strip, condemned attacks against civilians wherever they may be, and called for an immediate halt to all acts of violence.

A statement issued this Saturday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Morocco which has repeatedly warned of the repercussions of the political deadlock on peace in the region, and of the risks of aggravated tensions resulting from it, calls for an immediate halt to all acts of violence and a return to calm, while avoiding all forms of escalation that could undermine the chances of peace in the region.

Morocco, whose Sovereign, King Mohammed VI chairs the Al Quds Committee, stresses that dialogue and negotiations remain the only way to achieve a comprehensive and lasting solution to the Palestinian question, based on the resolutions of international legality and the two-state principle, as agreed internationally, the statement said.
