Statement by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs

Paris, July 28, 2013

I am delighted about the resumption of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations due to take place in Washington on Tuesday. I welcome this potentially major step forward, which comes after a three-year suspension, and I very much hope these negotiations can lead to an agreement.

It is in everyone’s interests to put an end to the conflict and guarantee the creation of a viable, sovereign Palestinian state living in peace and security alongside Israel.

France will spare no efforts to facilitate the negotiations and, when the time comes, take part in the implementation of a peace agreement./.
