"We need a resolution now which stops rocket attacks on Israel and ends Israel’s disproportionate response."
This is undoubtedly a very complex situation but my immediate diplomatic goal would be to see the UN Security council pass a resolution, supported by both Lebanon and Israel which secures an end to hostilities, sets out a political framework for a durable settlement and endorses the concept of an International Stabilisation Force. We need to get the Road Map back on track and secure a safe secure viable State of Palestine and a safe secure State of Israel."
"People in the region have suffered dreadfully! There is a growing humanitarian crisis in Lebanon with ever increasing numbers of internally displaced people in the South of the country as a result of military action, we need to play a full role in support of international agencies, other agencies and donors and NGO's to help humanitarian aid and recovery."
