The King commended Spain’s support of the ceasefire in Gaza, as well as its proactive role in the humanitarian response in the Strip, its contribution to aid airdrops, and its support for efforts to achieve peace on the basis of the two-state solution.

 His Majesty stressed the need to continue supporting UNRWA to enable it to provide its humanitarian services in accordance with its UN mandate, especially in light of the deteriorating conditions in Gaza, the statement said.  

The King reiterated that there can be no peace or stability in the region without a just solution to the Palestinian issue, on the basis of the two-state solution.
