G7’s top diplomats due to issue statement on Gaza conflict

G7 foreign ministers are expected to issue a joint statement on the Israel-Hamas war, calling for temporary pauses in fighting to allow humanitarian aid into Gaza. This would be the second joint statement from the group on the crisis, which was sparked by an attack on southern Israel by Hamas. The statement is also likely to express support for Ukraine in its war with Russia, emphasize the need for engagement with China, and condemn North Korea’s missile tests and arms transfers to Russia. Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno expressed hope for a united G7 position on the Middle East situation. The issue of humanitarian pauses was discussed at a working dinner attended by ministers from the G7 countries and the EU. The joint statement is expected to include a call for temporary breaks in fighting to allow aid into Gaza. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has expressed willingness to consider “tactical little pauses,” but has rejected calls for a ceasefire. The G7 has faced challenges in agreeing on a united approach to the conflict, raising questions about its relevance in tackling major crises. The only other G7 statement on the issue was brief, and divisions within the group have been evident at the United Nations. The ministers also discussed long-term plans for the Middle East peace process. Israel has been vague about its plans for Gaza, with Netanyahu stating that Israel would seek security responsibility for an indefinite period. However, Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen suggested that an international coalition or Gaza political leaders could administer the territory. Discussions are underway regarding options for post-conflict Gaza, including the deployment of a multinational force, an interim Palestinian-led administration, a security and governance role for neighboring Arab states, and temporary U.N. supervision. After the G7 meeting in Tokyo, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken will visit South Korea to strengthen their alliance and address concerns over North Korea’s military ties with Russia.
