Remarks made by Israeli ministers on the resettlement of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and Settlements in the Gaza Strip
(Statement by Press Secretary KOBAYASHI Maki)

January 5, 2024

Japan expresses its concern about remarks made by some Israeli ministers advocating for the resettlement of Palestinians outside of the Gaza Strip and the construction of settlements in the Strip.

Settlement activities are in violation of international law and undermine the viability of a two-state solution. Taking into account the critical humanitarian situations in the Gaza Strip, such inflammatory remarks that increase tensions are unacceptable, and Japan calls for refraining from irresponsible words and actions.
