“We, the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7), fully support and stand behind the comprehensive agreement outlined by President Biden, which will lead to an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, the release of all hostages, a significant and sustained increase in humanitarian assistance for distribution across Gaza, and a lasting end to the crisis, while ensuring Israel's security interests and the protection of Gaza's civilians,” the G7 leaders said in a statement.

He reaffirmed his support for peace through a two-state solution.

“We reaffirm our support for a credible path towards peace that will lead to a two-state solution,” he said.

“We call on Hamas to accept the agreement that Israel is willing to reach, and we urge countries with influence over Hamas to help ensure that Hamas does so,” the G-7 leaders said in the statement.

On Friday, US President Joe Biden announced that Israel has presented a “comprehensive new proposal” that provides a roadmap for a ceasefire in the ongoing war with Hamas in Gaza and secures the release of all hostages held by the terror group, reports CNN.

Earlier today, the US President spoke to the Emir of Qatar and urged him to take all appropriate steps to force Hamas to accept the deal.

US President Joe Biden held talks with Qatar's Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, discussing how a ceasefire and hostage agreement offer a concrete roadmap to ending the crisis in Gaza.

According to Biden, the proposal sent by Qatar to Hamas outlines a “roadmap” toward a ceasefire.

This initial phase, lasting six weeks, will see “a complete ceasefire, with the withdrawal of Israeli forces from all populated areas of Gaza” and “the release of many hostages, including women, the elderly, the injured, in exchange for the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners.”

The announcement comes after Israel presented new ideas earlier this week regarding hostage and ceasefire talks, a diplomatic source familiar with the talks told CNN on Tuesday, though he did not provide details about those new ideas.
