Foreign Ministry condemns assassination of Palestinian teenager in Jerusalem

The Romanian Foreign Ministry (MAE) is condemning the assassination of a Palestinian teenager on July 1, in Jerusalem, as a possible act of retaliation for the kidnapping and murdering of three young Israelis on June 12, in the West Bank, according to a press release issued on Thursday.

The MAE sends its condolences to the bereaved family and expresses solidarity with the Palestinian people.

'The MAE calls on Israeli and Palestinian authorities to adopt the necessary measures to prevent all acts of retaliation. The continuation of cooperation in the security field is vital, in view of clarifying the circumstances of the tragic events that occurred recently and bringing to justice those responsible,' the cited release reads.

The MAE also rejects 'unequivocally' the violence and loss of lives on both sides and appeals to avoiding gestures that may lead to further escalations.

'The current tense context, marked by the death of four young people lately, is making even more necessary the re-launch of the Israeli-Palestinian dialogue to lead to a lasting peace in the Middle East,' the release reads as well.
