External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has raised serious concern over the conflict in Gaza and asserted that "all the humanitarian crisis arising from conflicts required a sustainable solution."

He said that "efforts must also focus on those seeking a two-state solution where Palestinian people can live within secure borders."

"The conflict in Gaza is of grave concern to us all, the humanitarian crisis arising from conflicts requires a sustainable solution that gives immediate relief to those most affected at the same time, we must be clear that terrorism and hostages are unacceptable," Jaishankar said while addressing the 55th session of Human Rights Council virtually.

Saying that international humanitarian laws must always be respected, the Minister said, "It is vital for the conflict does not spread within or beyond the region. And efforts must also focus on seeking those states solution where Palestinian people can live within secure borders".

He noted that India's approach to human rights is rooted in democratic principles and pluralistic ethos.

Jaishankar said that the society and polity of India are anchored by the institutional strengths of an independent judiciary, robust media and vibrant civil society.

The Minister said, "India's approach to human rights is rooted in our democratic principles and pluralistic ethos. Our constitution guarantees the protection of civil and political rights and provides for the progressive realization of economic, social and cultural rights."

Talking about India's role, he said, "Human rights is rooted in our democratic principles and pluralistic ethos. Our constitution guarantees protection of civil and political rights and provides for progressive realisation of economic, social and cultural rights".

He further noted, "Let me recall what Indian civilizational thought has always emphasized that the world shares one earth, we are one family and we have one future. Both as a motivating vision and as a call for action, this Indian approach is one of recognizing that we are defined more by how much we are alike than by our differences. But the many are impacted by the choices made by even a few and that this interconnectedness means a genuine dialogue as the only way to find solutions is not just an imperative but inevitable."

Jaishankar said, "In our collective interest and responsibility to work together in the UN and outside to find lasting solutions to geopolitical challenges".

"For this to happen, it is vital that we first recognize that for multilateralism to be credible, effective and responsive. It is now high time to reform our data structures and fix systemic flaws, and urgently make multilateral frameworks fit for purpose, reflecting global realities" he said.
