Middle East

Asked for information regarding the Middle East, the PMOS replied that the important thing was that as the Prime Minister indicated in LA, that he believed that difficult as the matter was, and angry and mistrustful as people were, we had to deal with the immediate issue, and the UN continued to gather support from multinational forces. We also had to begin the process of re-engagement again. At this stage, we recognised that could only be in terms of small steps, but it was important that we began the conversation again. Therefore, that was what the Prime Minister would do. With regards to a trip to the Middle East, as the PMOS had said yesterday, a trip was not an end in itself. Rather, it was part of beginning that conversation again.

Put that media in Israel had been reporting that there would be a trip, the PMOS replied that speculation was not helpful.
