The United States used its veto power against the United Nations ceasefire resolution

The United States believes that adoption of the proposed resolution submitted to the UN Security Council on Tuesday would have jeopardized negotiations on the release of the hostages and a ceasefire, the White House national security spokesman told reporters.

John Kirby responded to the fact that the United States vetoed the Security Council resolution on Tuesday, which was submitted by Algeria and supported by Arab member states of the United Nations. Among other things, the document called for an immediate ceasefire, rejected the forced displacement of Palestinians, and condemned all forms of terrorism.

Kirby reminded that the United States is also participating in the negotiations aimed at freeing the hostages and reaching a temporary ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. In addition to rejecting the ceasefire proposal, the White House official also said that the US administration's special envoy is currently in Egypt and Israel to achieve results.

At the same time, John Kirby reiterated: The United States wants to end the conflict between Israel and Hamas in such a way that Hamas cannot remain in a leadership position and that the Palestinian organization is under pressure to release the hostages.

The White House National Security Council Communications Coordinator confirmed that the United States will not support a military attack on the city of Rafah without seeing a credible and implementable plan from Israel. He pointed out that the United States has not yet seen such a plan, although that does not mean that it does not exist. At the same time, he acknowledged that some Hamas leaders and certain units were hiding among civilians in Rafah, fleeing the previous Israeli attack, and that Israel had the right to act against them.
