William Hague reveals fears for Middle East peace process

Posted: February 9, 2011 in Uncategorized

The Middle East peace process is in danger of falling victim to the revolutionary tide sweeping the Arab world, the foreign secretary, William Hague, has warned.
Speaking on an emergency tour of the region, Hague also urged Israel to tone down its “belligerent” language amid the uprisings that have spread from Tunisia to Egypt and beyond. Hague said the “scale of any military conflict” between Israel and Hezbollah was growing, and that soon “peace may become impossible”.

The intervention came as the situation in Egypt intensified, with thousands of protesters again on the streets of Cairo demanding President Hosni Mubarak’s immediate departure.

In an interview with the Times en route to Jordan, Hague said: “Amid the opportunity for countries like Tunisia and Egypt, there is a legitimate fear that the Middle East peace process will lose further momentum and be put to one side, and will be a casualty of uncertainty in the region.” LINK HERE
