This morning, Secretary Clinton met with Special Envoy George Mitchell to discuss his recent trip to the Middle East. Following the meeting, Secretary Clinton said: “We are looking to work with all of the parties to try to help them make progress toward a negotiated agreement that would end the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, create an independent and viable Palestinian state in both the West Bank and Gaza, and provide Israel with the peace and security that it has sought.”
Today, Secretary Clinton also met with British Foreign Secretary David Miliband and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier. She underscored the importance of the close relationships America shares with the United Kingdom and Germany. She also expressed gratitude to both ministers for their countries’ commitments and work in Afghanistan.
