Shoukry made the remarks during his meeting on Monday with United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk.

During the meeting, which was held during Shoukry's visit to Geneva, the two sides discussed the humanitarian situation in the war-torn Gaza Strip, as the result of the war waged by Israel, which left about 30,000 people killed, said Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid.

Shoukry, meanwhile, underlined the need for contacting the Western countries to defend human rights in order to compel Israel to respect the international law and put an end to the forced displacement practices outside the Gaza Strip and liquidate the Palestinian cause.

For is part, the UN official lauded Egypt's crucial role in resolving the situation in Gaza Strip and dealing with the dire humanitarian situation in the enclave.
