Pashinyan: Armenia Plans to Deliver Humanitarian Aid to Gaza

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan revealed plans to dispatch humanitarian aid to Gaza, expressing deep regret for the staggering toll of innocent lives lost amid the recent surge in military operations. Pashinyan conveyed his sentiments after a crucial meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi in Cairo on Tuesday.

Drawing from Armenia's own experiences during Azerbaijani attacks on civilian populations and infrastructure, Prime Minister Pashinyan spoke about the urgent need for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. The international community's calls for peace resonate with Armenia, and Pashinyan commended Egypt's efforts to facilitate the unhindered delivery of humanitarian aid, the transportation of wounded Palestinians, and the safe evacuation of foreign nationals.

 "We [Armenians] ourselves have experienced the disaster of [Azerbaijani] attacks on the civilian population and civilian infrastructure, and we join the calls of the international community for the establishment of an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. In this matter, we laud the steps being taken by Egypt to ensure uninterrupted access of humanitarian aid to Gaza, to receive wounded Palestinians, and to evacuate foreigners,” said Pashinyan.

During the discussions with President El-Sisi, Pashinyan expressed gratitude for Egypt's willingness to assist and advise on Armenia's humanitarian aid mission to Gaza. He noted that the coordination of these efforts would be entrusted to the foreign ministers, emphasizing the importance of collaboration in times of crisis.

In his statement, Pashinyan reaffirmed Armenia's unwavering support for the 'two states' principle, a cornerstone of the international community's approach to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
