Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Friday urged the UN Security Council to press for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip to resolve the conflict through diplomatic means.
At his regular daily press conference, the Mexican president suggested the UN declare a ceasefire and establish a period of truce between the two sides.
“Let the diplomats have an opportunity and allow everyone who can help achieve peace take part,” Lopez Obrador told reporters.
“It is not about condemning anyone, but rather finding a way to stop this inhumane, cruel war. That is what Mexico proposes,” he said.
Mexico does not support “the irrationality of war,” especially when innocent people have lost their lives in the conflict, he said.
