CMEP Bulletin: Security Today. Tomorrow?
Martin Indyk, US special envoy to last year’s failed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, told the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) conference in Tel Aviv Monday, ‘if after the Israeli elections there is not an Israeli initiative of support for a two state solution there will be “international actions” pursued not by the Palestinians, but rather by the international community “in terms of a Security Council resolution” proposed by all its permanent members to “lay out and preserve the principles of a two state solution in the future.”’
Middle East Quartet Envoy Tony Blair also emphasized the need for an “enhanced role” for the international community in the peace process during a visit to Gaza February 15th. A senior Fatah official in Ramallah said the Palestinian leadership will begin a “diplomatic intifada ” in April calling for international and regional frameworks for Palestinian statehood and a resolution to the conflict based on international law.
