Gaza/Israel ceasefireWednesday, Nov 21, 2012 in Office of Tony Blair
Commenting on today's announcement, Quartet Representative Tony Blair said:
“I very much welcome this ceasefire, and highly commend the central role that Egypt’s government has played in bringing it about – with the helpful efforts of Secretary Clinton and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
“We must now act quickly to ensure long-term progress in the region so that the security of Israelis is ensured, and that life returns to normal for Gazans through continual improvements in their infrastructure and economy.
“We firmly believe that a two state solution is the way forward.”
