New York, 26 April 2007 - Secretary-General's press encounter (at Security Council stakeout)

Q: Welcome back. You seem to be satisfied with your trip to the region, to the Middle East. Do you think the peace process will be launched again soon? And what would be the indicators for that?

SG: Through my two visits to the Middle East, and I am going to make another one, third one, next week, I think I have learned and have been able to listen and learn from the leaders of the countries in the region, their challenges and their problems and their visions. It has been very useful for me and, at this time, the international community, Arabs, and Israelis, and other members of the international community, they should take this opportunity now being actively discussed, some political facilitation process. There was a national unity government established in Palestine; and the American Government has been actively engaged; the Quartet has been re-energized; Arab leaders are looking very seriously at the Arab peace initiative. All these issues, together with the United Nations role to facilitate this process, should be fully used and seized. This is what I hope. In that regard, I will continuously involve myself in whatever contribution I can make to facilitate such a peace process.
