Livini vows to allow aid into Gaza


EU foreign ministers pressed Israel to lift its blockade on humanitarian aid to the war-ravaged Gaza Strip.

Following talks in Brussels with Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni the union urged Israel to work towards a sustainable ceasefire and begin comprehensive talks with the Palestinians. The Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg said: “We achieved the assurance from the Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni that everything will be done from the Israeli side to have an effective humanitarian aid in the Gaza Strip.” Israel wants help to stop the flow of weapons to Hamas as Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni explains: “We achieved an understanding about the need to give an answer to the smuggling of weapons to the Gaza Strip – talking about durable and sustainable ceasefire means also a full cessation of smuggling of weapons and rearmament of Hamas in the future.” An anti-Israeli demonstration greeted Livni one of the architects of the three-week assault that left more than 1,300 Palestinians dead. Meanwhile, Israel denied it had used depleted uranium during its offensive and said that could be verified by any future UN investigation.
