GAZA, June 11 (Bernama-Xinhua) -- The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) announced on Monday that it welcomes a resolution adopted by the UN Security Council aimed at reaching a comprehensive ceasefire deal to end the war in Gaza, reported Xinhua.

Hamas expressed in a statement its readiness to cooperate with the mediators to engage in indirect negotiations to implement resolution principles "that are consistent with the demands of our people and resistance," including a permanent ceasefire in Gaza, the full withdrawal of Israeli forces, prisoner-hostage exchange and reconstruction.

The movement reiterated its commitment to continuing its "endeavor and struggle" for the Palestinian people's national rights.

The Palestinian presidency hailed the adoption of the resolution as a step in the right direction to stop the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian News Agency WAFA reported. The Palestinian presidency also called on all parties to fulfill their responsibilities to implement the resolution.

Earlier in New York, The UN Security Council on Monday adopted a resolution aimed at reaching a comprehensive ceasefire deal in three phases to end the war in Gaza.

Adopted by a large majority with 14 votes in favour and Russia abstaining, Resolution 2735  urges both parties to the conflict to fully implement the terms of the proposal "without delay and without condition".
