Reform in Palestine

Foreign & Commonwealth Office News

It was undoubtedly an important meeting that was held in London this Tuesday on how to help building a viable and democratic Palestine state.

The initiative come from Tony Blair, but the meeting was well attended in every single respect. Palestine President Abbas was obviously there, but so was UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, US Secretary of State Rice, President of the Europan Commission Barroso and numerous others.

Since I was at the same time at the University of Cambridge giving lectures and being part of seminars on "Peace After War", I couldn't follow all the details of the conference, but the concluding remarks by Tony Blair seems to sum up what was achieved.

A good days work, obviously.
