France renewed its call for the establishment of an independent, sovereign state for the Palestinians.

This was stated by French Foreign Minister Stephane Ségornet, on Saturday via the “X” platform, where he wrote: “The Palestinians have the right to sovereignty and to establish a state.”

He added, “France will remain loyal to its commitment in order to achieve this goal.”

The French minister’s position comes after statements by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in which he opposed the idea of Palestinian sovereignty in Gaza, stressing that “Israel” must maintain “control over the security of the Palestinian territories.”

Netanyahu said, “We will not give up our full security control over the lands west of Jordan (the West Bank).”

Washington and Europe support the two-state solution, which is opposed by the Israeli government, which continues a bloody war on the Gaza Strip for the 107th day in a row after the “Al-Aqsa Flood” attack on towns and cities surrounding the Gaza Strip on October 7, 2023.
