Leaders from various nations have united in advocating a two-state solution to resolve the Israel-Hamas conflict in Gaza. The call emphasises the urgent need for humanitarian aid, the protection of human rights, and an end to the ongoing war.

Notable figures supporting this initiative include President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda, who also serves as NAM Chairperson, Turkey's Vice President Cevdet Yılmaz, H.E. Moussa Faki Mahamat, Chairperson of the African Union Commission, and H.E. Dennis Francis, President of the UN General Assembly.

Cuba's Vice President, Salvador Valdés Mesa, went further to condemn the backing of the war by Western powers.

The two-state solution proposed for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict envisions establishing two independent states, Israel for the Jewish people and Palestine for the Palestinians, primarily in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Despite being widely endorsed internationally, key issues such as borders, the status of Jerusalem, and the presence of Israeli settlements in occupied territories remain contentious.

The proposal's success hinges on resolving these challenges, including the right of return for Palestinian refugees. While the two-state solution has been a focal point for peace negotiations, progress has been hindered by ongoing violence, settlement expansion, and political disputes. Support for this solution has waned among both Israelis and Palestinians, with some questioning its viability given changing realities on the ground.

Cuba's Vice President, addressing the Non-Aligned Movement summit in Kampala, urged NAM to leverage its influence to convene a special session of the UN General Assembly. However, the feasibility of the two-state solution ultimately depends on the political will and compromise demonstrated by Israel and Palestine.
