Kazakhstan's permanent representative to the UN Kairat Omarov noted that Kazakhstan's position on the peace process in the Middle East remains unchanged. Kazakhstan stands for an early resumption of negotiations, especially in a bilateral format and without preconditions. It is necessary to promote the peace process in accordance with the resolutions of the UN Security Council, the Madrid Principles, and the Road Map for Peace and the Arab Peace Initiative.

The Kazakh delegation emphasized that there is no alternative to the formula “Two States for Two Nations”. The country supported the statement made by the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on December 7. The statement says that Jerusalem is a final status issue that must be resolved through direct negotiations between the two sides based on the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council and General Assembly, taking into account legitimate concerns of both the Palestinian and Israeli sides.

Kazakhstan fully supports the rights of the Palestinian people to self-determination and the establishment of an independent state within the international borders of 1967 with East Jerusalem as the capital of a future independent Palestine.
