In a joint statement, they emphasized, "We are agreed that the only way to achieve lasting peace and stability in the region is through implementation of a two-state solution, with Israeli and Palestinian States living side-by-side, in peace and security.”

The Prime Ministers also welcomed the outcomes adopted by the European Council at a summit in Brussels, where EU leaders called for an ‘immediate humanitarian ceasefire’ in Gaza and urged Israel to refrain from launching a ground operation in Rafah.

The European leaders highlighted that over a million Palestinians are currently seeking safety and humanitarian aid in Gaza. They called for an immediate ceasefire and a rapid and sustained increase in humanitarian aid to the region, expressing deep concern about the catastrophic humanitarian situation in Gaza and its disproportionate impact on civilians, especially children. Additionally, they raised concerns about the imminent risk of famine due to insufficient aid entering Gaza.
