Qatar Foreign Ministry spokesperson Majed al-Ansari said Wednesday that he hopes a truce agreement will be reached between Israel and Hamas before the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan on April 9.

Qatar, a mediator in the negotiations, “seeks to push the two parties to reach an agreement,” he said in a post on X.

His statement comes a day after he told CNN’s Becky Anderson that “we are nowhere near a deal at the moment.”
