President Biden spoke today with Amir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani of Qatar.  They confirmed that the comprehensive ceasefire and hostage release deal now on the table offers a concrete roadmap for ending the crisis in Gaza.  The President confirmed Israel’s readiness to move forward with the terms that have now been offered to Hamas.  The President emphasized that this is the best possible opportunity for an agreement, and that Hamas’ ongoing refusal to release hostages would only prolong the conflict and deny relief to the people of Gaza.  The President confirmed that the United States, together with Egypt and Qatar, would work to ensure the full implementation of the entire agreement.  He urged Amir Tamim to use all appropriate measures to secure Hamas’ acceptance of the deal and affirmed that Hamas is now the only obstacle to a complete ceasefire and relief for the people of Gaza.  The President thanked the Amir and his senior team for their tireless efforts to secure the release of all hostages held in Gaza and agreed to remain closely coordinated over the coming days.
