Israel-Hamas war and Ukraine war are completely different, but both of wars sends a shock wave and has serious consequences for the worl,” said Josep Borrell, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security said this in his statement to journalists before the Foreign Affairs Council of European Union that’s going to be held in Luxembourg, APA reports.
Borrell, responding to a journalist's question about Russia accusing the West of demonstrating double standards in the Israel-Hamas war: “Of course, Russia is taking advantage of this situation. The issue of double standarts regarding Gaza existed before the war and now this issue comes up again. Therefore, we must be open about expressing equal concern about the killing of all civilians. We must demonstrate the same concern. We express our support for Israel strongly because the people of Israel were attacked and we strongly condemn what is being done to them, but we must also take into account that innocent Palestinians are also being killed, they are also victims of Hamas. That’s why, we must express the same concern for the killing of every civilian,” he emphasized.
