PRESS CONFERENCE BY PERMANENT REPRESENTATIVE OF FRANCE TO UNITED NATIONS

ON FRANCE’S FORTHCOMING PRESIDENCY OF EUROPEAN UNION IN JULY


/...

The French Presidency intended to participate actively in the Quartet ( European Union, Russian Federation, United Nations and United States), he said in response to another question.  The Quartet’s position was very clear.  The European Union would support the Americans, and it still believed in the 2008 deadline for a viable, peaceful, democratic Palestinian State living side by side with Israel, which would enhance Israel’s security.  He welcomed the Gaza ceasefire and had made several proposals regarding Gaza.
