French President Emmanuel Macron says his country is working with Algeria on “a joint resolution” on Gaza to push for a ceasefire and address the desperate need for humanitarian aid.

France is supporting the Algerian request for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council over the situation in Rafah, he says.

The response to the Israel-Hamas war “can only be a political one,” Macron says, speaking in Meseberg, Germany, on the third day of a state visit in the country.

“We are ready to actively work at a peaceful solution, it’s reachable with political will,” Macron adds. He says French diplomats will work in the “coming hours and days” at convincing “all our partners” over the resolution proposal.
