Members of the Ministerial Committee, appointed by the Riyadh-hosted Joint Arab-Islamic Extraordinary Summit and led by Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal Bin Farhan, convened for an official meeting in Ottawa on Saturday with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Present at the meeting were Palestine Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Riyad Al-Malki, and the Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Hakan Fidan.

The focus of the discussions centered on the rapidly unfolding events and concerning developments in the Gaza Strip, particularly the military escalation against unarmed civilians.

The committee stressed the urgent need for an immediate ceasefire to restore security and stability in the region.

Emphasizing the imperative for swift international action, the committee called on the global community to fulfill its responsibilities in safeguarding civilians from the Israeli occupation's actions, condemning the violence against unarmed civilians.

They asserted that deliberations about the future of Gaza and the broader Palestinian cause should follow an immediate ceasefire and the de-escalation of military tensions.

The committee further highlighted the necessity of taking serious and immediate measures to establish humanitarian corridors for the delivery of relief assistance into Gaza.

They expressed strong opposition to any restrictions on aid entry to the Strip.

In addition, the committee underscored the importance of fostering a genuine political environment to pave the way for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the borders of June 4, 1967, in accordance with relevant international resolutions.

They firmly rejected any discussions about the Gaza Strip separate from the broader Palestinian cause.
