Japan concerned over Israel’s demolition of 10 building in East Jerusalem

 

RAMALLAH, Thursday, July 25, 2019 (WAFA) - The Government of Japan expressed deep concern over the Israeli authorities’ demolition of about 10 buildings owned by Palestinians in Wadi al-Hummus, Sur Bahir village, occupied East Jerusalem.

“Japan firmly believes that the issues faced by the two parties, Israel and Palestine, can only be resolved through direct negotiations based on trust built through the efforts of both parties,” said a statement issued by representative office of Japan to Palestine.

This incident goes against the ongoing efforts by the international community, including Japan, to create an environment conducive to serious dialogue between the parties and to achieve a two-state solution whereby the state of Israel and a future independent state of Palestine co-exist in peace, added the statement.

“Japan once again strongly urges both parties to act to enhance mutual trust and continue to make steady efforts toward peace,” the statement concluded.
