Statement by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development

Vienna, July 13, 2014

In Gaza and Israel, the absolute priority is a ceasefire.

Indeed, very many civilians have been killed in Gaza, while rockets are falling on Israel: it is this disastrous escalation which must be halted.

France, like the United Nations Security Council, is calling for the re-establishment of the truce concluded in 2012.

We are mobilized to help Israelis and Palestinians towards this goal./.
