Middle East

Asked how important the Prime Minister felt it was so bolster the Palestinian security apparatus, particularly with the withdrawal operation in Gaza, the PMOS said that if the pullout from Gaza went ahead, as expected, then it was important that the vacuum left behind in terms of security, in terms of the administrative ability of the Palestinian Authority and in terms of political development within Palestine be filled. It was important that we helped, along with others, in that process. This was an issue which had been analysed and would be addressed. Asked if this was an issue which would be raised with President Bush and if we would be looking for a commitment from the US, the PMOS said that it would already be part of the conversation between us and the US, and would be one element of the discussion with the President.
