Ramaphosa Calls for an End to Hostilities in Israel-Palestine and Russia-Ukraine Conflict

# President Cyril Ramaphosa

President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa has urged for an immediate end to hostilities not only in the Israel-Palestine conflict but also in the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

During the official talks with the Netherlands King Willem-Alexander on the occasion of the State Visit, President Ramaphosa expressed concern over the ongoing conflicts and their impact on international cooperation and the pursuit of a world free of conflict.

He called for a cessation of hostilities, upholding international law, and the responsibility of the international community to facilitate negotiations and dialogue.

President Ramaphosa emphasized the importance of peace in a time of great conflict, drawing on South Africa’s own journey from a painful history to a democratic present. As a country that chose reconciliation over conflict, he believes that adversaries with bitter histories can come together for the sake of peace. The President praised the relationship between South Africa and the Netherlands, highlighting the Netherlands’ support for development and economic growth across the developing world, including former Dutch colonies.

South Africa and the Netherlands have a strong bilateral relationship, with the Netherlands being a major investor in South Africa and South Africa being a popular tourist destination for the Dutch. The President mentioned that the bilateral cooperation between the two countries spans various sectors such as agriculture, education, transport, science, innovation, water management, and energy, particularly in the fields of green hydrogen and renewable energy.

Reflecting on the historical ties between the two countries, President Ramaphosa acknowledged the arrival of Dutch settlers in the Cape in 1652 and the influence of Dutch culture in South African society. He mentioned that Afrikaans, the third most widely spoken national language in South Africa, has its origins in Dutch, and there are distinct Dutch influences in the cuisine and customs of the country. Despite the colonial past, the President emphasized the commitment of both countries to confront and acknowledge the injustices of the past and strive for a better future based on shared values, human rights, equality, and development.

President Ramaphosa concluded his remarks by expressing his appreciation for the Netherlands’ apology for its role in the slave trade, including in South Africa. He sees this apology as an important step towards promoting reconciliation, restoration, and healing old wounds.

In light of President Ramaphosa’s call for an end to hostilities, it is crucial for all parties involved in the conflicts between Israel and Palestine and Russia and Ukraine to prioritize dialogue, negotiation, and adherence to international law.
