Tony Blair on the Middle East conflict: "Complete cessation is the urgent objective"Monday, Nov 19, 2012 in Office of Tony Blair
Commenting on the conflict in the Middle East, on his 92nd visit to the region, Quartet Representative Tony Blair said:
"The suffering of innocent civilians, Palestinian and Israeli, makes a complete cessation the urgent objective. Israeli families need to be free from fear of rocket attacks and Gazan families relieved of the pain of the air strikes, so a ceasefire should be brought into being as soon as possible. We can then work on an agenda that ensures long-term the security of Israel and the return to normal life for Gaza, which has been absent for too long.
“We also continue to work on a credible political horizon for the two state solution that is, and remains, the only viable solution."
