Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs and Trade, Darragh O’Brien TD has welcomed the Paris Peace Summit, aimed at restarting peace talks between Israel and Palestine.
”The talks in Paris are welcome and demonstrate that there remains a strong commitment amongst the international community to peace in the region and the realisation of a two-state solution,” commented O’Brien.
“Ultimately, a two-state solution is the only viable solution in this protracted conflict. However, serious transgressions by both sides in this conflict are hampering the possibility of peace and are putting the feasibility of a two-state solution in serious jeopardy.
“While the international community can play a part in helping to broker peace in the region, they can only do so much and the situation is becoming increasingly untenable. The Palestinian and Israeli authorities must begin to show leadership and demonstrate through their words and actions that they are genuinely committed to peace and stability in the region.
