UN Security Council urges resumption of Gaza talks

Tags: News
The UN Security Council deplored the resumption of fighting in the Gaza Strip and called on Israel and the Palestinians to resume negotiations.

British Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant read a council statement yesterday expressing 'grave concern at the return to hostilities following the breach of the Egyptian-brokered humanitarian cease-fire'. He said the council calls upon the parties 'to reach an immediate humanitarian cease-fire' and resume talks in Cairo.

Lyall Grant said Security Council members are discussing a possible resolution that would call for a sustainable cease-fire.

Jordan has circulated such a resolution, but Jordanian Ambassador Dina Kawar told reporters yesterday, "We're taking our time to talk to the Americans, to the Europeans because the whole idea is to have a Security Council that's effective."
