  • Hamdah Salhut
    Hamdah Salhut “The latest developments will likely strain the Israeli military, which is already stretched thin, amid fears of an all-out regional war. Israeli reservists are operating in both the northern and southern parts of the country as Israel fights Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon. If the air force is going to have to be additionally deployed to more parts of the Middle East like Yemen, it's tough to say how exactly they're going to manage that when they're looking still to recruit more people for the army. It's a lot of pressure on the Israelis as yet another front has opened this morning.” 5 hours ago

    Yoav Gallant “The fire that is currently burning in Hodeidah is seen across the Middle East and the significance is clear. The Houthis attacked us over 200 times. The first time that they harmed an Israeli citizen, we struck them. And we will do this in any place where it may be required.” 5 hours ago
  • Izzat al-Rishq
    Izzat al-Rishq “The occupation state will undoubtedly be burned by the fire ignited in Hodeidah today, and the mounting Zionist crimes will change the entire equation.” 5 hours ago
  • Yousef Mawry
    Yousef Mawry “The Houthis say that any state, any Arab regime, any government in the region that helps Israel or the US carry out attacks on Yemen will be met with retaliation. It's going to be an all-out attack against all Israeli, US and British military presence across the region - whether that would be in the island of Socotra here in Yemen, US military bases in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Jordan. The Houthis are basically declaring war on Israel, the US, the British government and any Arab regime considered an ally of Israel.” 22 hours ago

“If you go back a few months, certainly a year, [NATO's] public narrative was: We're watching to see if China is arming Russia. The statement now says, in effect, yes, China is arming Russia, not by providing finished weapons systems but by providing key components, which enable Russian production of weapons systems. So, I would say that the political pressure to act has gone up substantially. Sitting in Washington, the mood on China is pretty tough on both sides of the political aisle. There's almost competition between the Democratic and Republican sides to be tougher on China. In a way, especially for European countries, [there are] some difficult choices, and the EU has perhaps been more hopeful for longer than the U.S. on being able to find ways of having a slightly more cooperative relationship with China.”

“I think it is important to understand that we do not want to see unintended consequences, escalation, which can turn this conflict into a wider one that will go beyond Ukraine. I think it's something we all need to look at and take very seriously. It is necessary to look at secondary and tertiary consequences in terms of potential escalation if targets inside Russia are under attack.”

“I think the quickest path to peace is that Ukraine be strong enough to win the war and between what we are doing here this week and what has been done in recent months, we feel very confident that Ukraine will be able to say to Russia we can continue fighting and defeating you through 2025.”

“Well, sometimes you wonder about the ego, especially of some men. Every country in the European Union knows that especially in the field of foreign policy and security, the responsibility doesn't lie with the presidency [of the EU Council], which only lasts for six months, but with the High Representative of the European Union for foreign politics. During his trip to Moscow, Orbán basically urged Ukraine to stop defending itself. Telling this to the victim of an aggression - that is in total breach not only of the European Union peace order but also of the UN Charter. In Beijing, Orbán did not urge China to stop supporting Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine. It obviously makes it very clear that this is not the foreign policy of the European Union.”

“For India, the most critical strategic challenge is China's expansionism at its borders, said. It will tend to look at all its relationships through that prism. The China factor makes for an additional driver for India's engagement not just with China's strongest global competitor, the U.S., but also with its closest ally, Russia.”

“In June, the Russian army lost more than 1,400 artillery systems, more than 600 armoured fighting vehicles, almost 360 tanks. These are unprecedented losses. And what are the achievements on the battlefield? These figures are evidence of the fact that we are winning the counter-battery struggle … Russians shoot more often, but the results are better with us.”

“Analysis of the video footage and an assessment made at the incident site indicates a high likelihood that the children's hospital suffered a direct hit rather than receiving damage due to an intercepted weapon system.”

“India has always called for respecting the UN Charter, including territorial integrity and sovereignty. There is no solution on the battlefield. Dialogue and diplomacy is the way forward.”

“With Europe trying to increasingly speak with one voice in its relations to China and Russia, Orban's unannounced and uncoordinated trips [to Moscow and to Beijing] are not helping in signalling or creating a unified European Union with regard to EU-China relations. Orban's proposals for resolving the war largely correspond with Putin's interests.”

“Only when all major powers project positive energy rather than negative energy can a ceasefire occur. It is in the interests of all parties to seek a political solution through an early ceasefire.”

“China is a key power in creating the conditions for peace in the Russia-Ukraine war. This is why I came to meet with President Xi in Beijing, just two months after his official visit to Budapest.”

“Prime Minister Orbán was in Kyiv and then flew to Moscow. I had no idea he was flying to Moscow; it was his choice. As for whether he could be an intermediary... there is no mediation between Russia and Ukraine... Only serious, strong partnerships can serve as intermediaries; the entire world can force Russia to end this conflict. It isn't about mediation, but about opportunity. You have to have either an economy that has an impact on Russia or that the Russian Federation and Putin depend on, or a formidable army that Putin is afraid of because it's stronger than the Russian army. Are there many such countries in the world? Not many. I believe the United States is one such country… [So are] China and the European Union (not one specific EU country, but the EU as a whole). That really could be a mediatory mission. That's why we came up with an opportunity to put pressure on Russia and stop Putin. We have to pool all our efforts together to accomplish this, because he has no respect for those who are weak. Even if he talks with (a representative of) a certain state, that doesn't mean he wants to end the war. He wants to pretend there are some steps [taken towards peace], but this is invariably followed by a murderous demonstration, such as this morning in Ukraine.”

“This meeting with Putin is special because it took place during the war. We have realised over the past two and a half years that we cannot achieve peace without dialogue and diplomatic channels. Hungary is one of the few countries who can talk to both sides of the war. I felt that the positions are very far apart, that many steps need to be taken to establish peace, but the first important step towards dialogue has already been taken.”

“Russian forces are not capable of big breakthroughs on the battlefield in Ukraine, whereas Kyiv is inflicting significant damage on Russia with strikes deep into its territory. And we don't have any other indications or reasons to believe that Russia has the capabilities, the strength to make big breakthroughs. Russia had launched another offensive in Ukraine during the spring and summer, but so far [with] only marginal gains. Russia is likely to continue to push along the front lines and launch airstrikes in Ukraine. But what we have seen is that the Ukrainians have been able to hold the line. They have been able to continue to inflict heavy losses on the Russian invaders, both along the front line, but also by deep strikes.”

“The remaining week of June and the first half of July will be no less productive for Ukraine than May and the first half of June. We have already received decisions on new Patriot [air defence systems] for Ukraine and are working on more. We are working on obtaining additional air defence systems. Long-range [weapons] aren't just about what we can achieve on the battlefield, but about when this war might come to an end. The more we can do, the sooner we will be able to get Russia to accept just and fair peace.”

“In the end, the only outcome of this perplexing event, which attempted to resolve an armed conflict without the involvement of the side that started it, was the death of the very 'peace formula' it strove to promote. The communique signed by 81 participants at the summit doesn't even begin to outline the contours of a possible settlement. It only covers three important but secondary issues - Ukraine's grain export, the safety of nuclear power stations and the return of war prisoners and Ukrainian children removed by the Russians from the warzone into Russia. But even so, key players like Brazil, India and Saudi Arabia avoided signing it, arguing that a forum aiming to achieve peace with Russia makes little sense in Russia's absence.”

“It is incredibly concerning [Russia supplying weapons to North Korea]. It would destabilize the Korean Peninsula, of course, and potentially ... depending on the type of weapons they provide, might violate U.N. Security Council resolutions that Russia itself has supported.”
