March 31, 2003: Presidency statement concerning the terrorist suicide attack at Netanya
The Presidency condemns in the strongest possible terms the terrorist suicide attack, carried out by a Palestinian extremist in the town of Netanya in Israel causing the serious injury of dozens of innocent civilians. It expresses our sincere sympathy to the relatives of the victims and to the Israeli government.
The Presidency is convinced that such actions undermine any peaceful resolution of this conflict and pose serious difficulty to the fulfilment of the legitimate Palestinian national aspirations. Equally so, the continuation of violence underlines the necessity of immediate and full implementation of the Quartet’s
by both Israel and the Palestinian Authority, which will lead to a solution of two states living in internationally recognised borders with security and peace.
