"The results of the Charm el Cheik Summit, which was held on February 8 and proved the clear will of all participants to move forward, give me great confidence.
I welcome in particular the commitment of both sides to seek a peaceful resolution of the conflict.
Dialogue and negotiation are prerequisites for the Peace Process and, on the basis of the Summit’s results, new hopes arise for cooperation with a view to implementing the roadmap.
This process should lead to the coexistence of two States, thanks in particular to the creation of an independent, democratic and viable Palestinian State, living side by side with Israel and its other neighbours, in peace and security."
