We had extensive talks on the situation in Gaza. I must tell you that there was no formal agreement. In my capacity of President of the Council, I have noted very strong convergences.
Serious convergences to express serious concerns at the escalation and the deterioration of the situation in Gaza and southern Israel.
Serious convergences on a call for an immediate, permanent and fully respected cease-fire.
Serious convergences on a deep concern about the humanitarian situation in Gaza and the need to ensure free access for humanitarian supplies and on a call on all parties to protect the civilian population.
Serious convergences on a full support for the regional and international diplomatic efforts underway to help resolve this crisis.
Serious convergences on the urgent need for Israelis and Palestinians to continue negotiations for a comprehensive solution, as envisaged in Security Council resolution 1850.
