Foreign Minister warns against further escalation of violence in the Middle East

‘The events of the last few days clearly show how quickly the current tense situation could spiral out of control. I urge both the Israelis and the Palestinians to exercise restraint. It is important to seize upon the initiative for a ceasefire, which now appears to be coming from the Palestinians.

Statement on the situation in the Middle East

New York, 22 July 2014

‘The death toll in Gaza has now reached almost 650. More than 150 of those killed are children.

Unacceptable consequences for the civilian population

Strong Norwegian reaction to escalating violence in Gaza

Foreign Minister Brende to visit the Middle East: Decisive need for ceasefire and a lasting peace

‘The only viable way to bring the civilian losses and the enormous suffering in Gaza to an end is an early ceasefire. More than 180 people have been reported killed and some 1400 have been wounded during the attacks of the past week. Most of them are civilians, and many are women and children. This is unacceptable, and cannot be allowed to continue,’ said Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende, who is travelling to the Middle East today.

Norway condemns murder of Palestinian teenager

’I condemn the murder of a Palestinian teenager in Jerusalem on 2 July. There is no excuse for acts of revenge.
