Lula defends the creation of a Palestinian state
Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva participated on Monday (25/12) in a Christmas lunch with repatriates from the Gaza Strip. During the meeting, the president defended the creation of a Palestinian state and stated that “it is not humanly possible to accept what is happening in the Gaza Strip.”
“The death of so many women and so many children, the destruction of all the heritage that was built by the Palestinian people, is not possible,” said Lula. “I have long advocated the creation of a Palestinian state. And we continue fighting at the UN so that a Palestinian state can be built and that the people can live in peace again,” she added.
In his speech, the president stated that Brazilian diplomacy will continue talking to Israeli diplomacy to allow the removal of civilians from the Gaza Strip.
