The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Yusuf Maitama Tuggar, has urged for immediate international action to reduce the extreme violence against noncombatants in the Israel-Palestine conflict. Ambassador Tuggar confirmed Nigeria’s support for U.S. President Joe Biden’s ceasefire proposal, advocating for a swift and peaceful resolution.

“The Biden ceasefire proposal should be embraced by world leaders and the international community to intensify efforts towards a speedy resolution of the conflict and the immediate cessation of extreme violence in Gaza and other areas affecting innocent civilians,” said Ambassador Tuggar. He emphasized the importance of continuous, sufficient, and unhindered provision of lifesaving humanitarian supplies and services for civilians.

Nigeria assures the United States of its support in bringing about a complete cessation of violence and ending the senseless loss of lives and the humanitarian crisis caused by the conflict. The ongoing violence, according to Ambassador Tuggar, is setting a negative precedent for international justice, and he stressed that justice should not be confused with revenge. He highlighted that Biden’s plan offers a clear path toward peace and progress.

The statement, issued by Alkasim Abdulkadir, Special Assistant to the Honorable Minister of Foreign Affairs on Media and Communications Strategy, stated that President Joe Biden’s proposal includes a permanent ceasefire, an increase in humanitarian aid, the release of hostages, and a major reconstruction plan to rebuild homes, schools, and hospitals. Nigeria believes this plan is the best way forward for all parties involved and can prevent tragedies like the deaths of more than 200 people at the Nuseirat refugee camp on June 8.
