United Nations Security Council, at the fourth conference on Israel-Palestine disagreement, has failed to find a consensus on a ceasefire, and the United States has said it will not tolerate such a crisis.
The Biden government has been criticized for its unwavering support for Israel, which has staged massive air strikes in Gaza and killed 219 Palestinians, including 63 children. In Israel, at least 12 people, including two children, have been killed in rockets fired from Gaza.
The second meeting took place after the US three times closed a unanimous report on violence, with U.S. diplomat Linda Thomas-Greenfield seen as raising hopes that the agreement would be reached soon.
“As far as the Security Council is concerned, we need to consider whether any or all of the words would promote the hope of ending violence,” he said at a secret meeting. “We do not consider it necessary to comment on such fabrications.”
Thomas-Greenfield added that the US was working to resolve the crisis through its own channels, including a US envoy sent to Israel.
As one of the five permanent members of the council, the US is able to block decisions and opinions.
Although the US refused, France on Tuesday said the UN Security Council was the right place to push for an end to the war.
“The UN Security Council should make this decision and we have called for a referendum on this issue,” the French president said after talks between Emmanuel Macron, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and King Abdullah of Jordan.
France has issued a resolution calling for a ceasefire in cooperation with Israel’s neighbors in Egypt and Jordan.
Zhang Jun, Beijing’s ambassador to the UN, told reporters that his party had heard France’s call for an end to the war and that China was “supporting” it.
An ambassador told the AFP news agency that the request was to end the conflict, and to “allow for humanitarian action”.
‘We Have Not Quiet’
Monday, US President Joe Biden, following dproblems, he expressed support for ending the war by calling on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as he continues to defend Israel’s right to “self-defense”.
Progressives, a recent ally in the Biden party in the Democratic Republic, had stepped out to help stop the war before the President said so.
Biden officials are being pressured to take action against Israel in the wake of the Gaza Strip, which has destroyed hundreds of Palestinian homes and protesters.
On Tuesday, the European Union (EU), with the exception of Hungary, also called for a ceasefire.
“We have not been silent and neither have you,” Thomas-Greenfield told Security Council Tuesday.
However, with Egyptian and UN representatives working to address the crisis, there is little sign of progress.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also said in a Twitter post on Tuesday that the Israeli insurgency “would continue as long as it brought peace” to all its citizens.
