Post Election Briefing for Foreign Diplomats

"We cannot give up. We cannot be frozen because of the results of an election. A UN Security Council Resolution sends the message that this issue is still very much on the international agenda and the world is committed to it." - said Geneva Initiative Chairman Yossi Beilin to the six Ambassadors and over 30 diplomatic representatives who attended a diplomatic briefing held at the Geneva Initiative offices in Tel Aviv today.

Beilin (former Minister of Justice and Deputy Foreign Minister) and GI Director General-Israel Gadi Baltiansky discussed the results of the recent Israeli election and the critical role of the international community in pushing forward with the peace process.
