U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton assures solution to Israel-Palestinian conflictFebruary 12th, 2010 - 4:46 am ICT by BNO News
WASHINGTON, D.C. (BNO NEWS) – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday spoke with former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Quartet Representative of the Middle East Tony Blair to discuss developments in the region.
The Obama administration was said to have worked to bring about comprehensive peace in the Middle East, including a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Secretary Clinton said that on that issue, the administration’s approach has been three-fold:
1. To help build the economy and capacity to govern of a Palestinian state.
2. To renew political negotiations to enable the earliest possible establishment of that state.
3. To achieve these in a manner that ensures the security of Israel and of the Palestinians.
She said that this was consistent with Prime Minister Fayyad’s plan for a future Palestinian State, and that Tony Blair, as the Quartet representative, will intensify his relationship with Senator George Mitchell, previous charge of an American fact-finding commission intended to find solutions for solving the situation between Israel and the Palestinians and special envoy for the Middle East, in support of the political negotiations.
In his role as Quartet Representative, Tony Blair will continue, with full support and coordination with Senator Mitchell, to mobilize the efforts of the international community to help support the future of a Palestinian State, to improve the freedom of movement and access for Palestinians, and to bring change in the living conditions for the people of Gaza.
