Tokyo - As the G7 foreign ministers gather in Tokyo for the talks designed to seek a resolution of the Palestine-Israel conflict, their ability to speak out for a successful cease-fire will be compromised by divergences within the bloc.

Japan just hosts the meeting and remains cautious about its involvement and focused on international security issues. Divergences, mainly after six nations, excluding Japan, supported Israel among the G7 nations, have deepened.

With the action of Israel, the differences between the US and others within the G7 have risen as tensions. Regarding Jewish concerns, Japan remains cautious about the nature of oil that it depends on from the Middle East.

The EU is increasingly concerned over spillover effects and a burgeoning refugee catastrophe.

The hostilities heightened tensions between pro-Palestinian and pro-Israel groups, as well as between the Jewish and Muslim communities within the EU. Protests in support of the Palestinians have erupted across Europe with the purpose of raising awareness about the violent outbreak and civilians' suffering in Gaza.

The G7 foreign ministers were set to hold discussions on the Ukraine crisis, seeking a show of unflinching support as the EU and US show divergent focuses. The bloc's discussions are meant to make sure its stand remains strong internationally at a time of global mounting pressure. Nevertheless, the efficiency of the G7 in stopping the Gaza crisis still remains doubtful. The block rhetoric about "pause" may not represent an actual solution.

Reports add that the G7 foreign ministers are also likely to talk about China's maritime activities. In circumstances where global tensions and humanitarian crises continue to go along with them, countries are advised to look for solutions instead of encouraging more hostility as a means of upholding justice and morality.
