Greek opposition party reiterates call for negotiations on a two-state solution to Israel-Palestine conflict

The Greek main opposition SYRIZA party has restated its demand for an immediate commencement of negotiations toward a two-state resolution to the Israel-Palestine conflict.

In a statement to Anadolu on Thursday, Rena Douru, the head of the party's international department, emphasized SYRIZA's clear stance, calling for an urgent ceasefire, the release of all hostages, and the unimpeded delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza. Additionally, SYRIZA advocates for the resumption of negotiations for a two-state solution, aiming for an independent Palestine within the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The statement highlighted a recent visit to the West Bank by a party delegation led by SYRIZA's president, Stefanos Kasselakis, as a demonstration of solidarity with Palestinians. During the visit, the delegation toured the Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem, where they witnessed the dire living conditions and held discussions with senior Palestinian officials.

The Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip, which began on October 7, 2023, has resulted in a devastating toll, with over 36,000 casualties, widespread destruction, and displacement of civilians. The relentless assault has left the majority of Gaza's population homeless and facing the threat of famine.
