Saddened at latest terror attack in Israel, Annan says it must not derail peace efforts
United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today reacted with sadness to the news of today’s suicide bombing in Tel Aviv, in which a number of innocent civilians were wounded, and stressed that the perpetrators must not be allowed to derail peace efforts.
“No cause can justify deliberate acts designed to kill or maim civilians,” a spokesman for Mr. Annan said in a statement released in New York.
The Secretary-General “calls upon Palestinians and Israelis to do their utmost to maintain calm at this difficult moment,” spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
“Those who ordered and carried out this attack must not be allowed to undermine democratic processes, or to derail efforts to promote peace between the parties.”
