The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, expressed his support for US Vice President Kamala Harris’ call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Through a post on X, Borrell said that he supports Harris’ call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

He stated that Harris’ call “should mean the removal of the obstacle to the UN Security Council’s resolution in this direction.”

He added, “It’s time for the Security Council to act”.

US Vice President Kamala Harris stressed in a speech on Sunday that there is an urgent need for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip due to the great suffering of the population.

The US vice-president Kamala Harris has bluntly called out Israel for not doing enough to ease a “humanitarian catastrophe” in Gaza as the Biden administration faces increasing pressure to rein in its close ally while it wages war with Hamas militants.

Harris, speaking on Sunday in front of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, where state troopers beat US civil rights marchers nearly six decades ago, called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and urged Hamas to accept a deal to release hostages in return for a 6-week cessation of hostilities.

But she directed the bulk of her comments at Israel in what appeared to be the sharpest rebuke yet by a senior US administration high official, against the Israeli atrocities on the Palestinians in Gaza.

It’s noteworthy that the United States has used Veto in the UN Security Council three times since the start of the Israeli war on Gaza on October 7, 2023, against draft resolutions calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.
