Spanish Presidency: EU working with US to reset clock of peace in Middle East

15 janvier 2010

There is a « general mobilisation » of the international community to relaunch peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians, according to a press release from the Spanish Presidency of the EU.   After meeting with the US special envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell, on 12 January in Brussels, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Ángel Moratinos said: “It is time for commitment, and that’s what the European Union is going to do, working together with the parties, with the Palestinians, with the Arab world, with the Israelis, so that we can jointly reset the clock of peace.”   With this in mind, Mitchell and Moratinos will strengthen the “coordination and complementarity of US and European diplomacy,” the Spanish diplomat said.   Moratinos also took part in a meeting of the so-called « Paris Group« , which brings together the main donors to the Palestinian people and monitors the Oslo Peace Accords of 1993 between Israel and Palestine, as well as giving technical and economic support towards the creation of a Palestinian State.
