We also note with regret the lack of progress so far in bringing peace to the region as well as the Council’s inability to assist in that process. It is important for the Council to be kept fully apprised of the efforts being carried out and we are hopeful that the Council will be able, at some stage of the process, to pursue a constructive role in bringing peace to the Middle East.
