The Quartet is working with the US, the UN and Egypt to bring an end to the ongoing conflict in Gaza, Quartet Middle East envoy Tony Blair told President Shimon Peres in a meeting at the President's Residence on Monday.
Peres noted that the Quartet have been very helpful in its support for Israel and in restraining the other side in the current Gaza conflict, and stated that Blair had a hand in this position.
The firing has to be stopped, said Peres. Though he admitted to being surprised by the stand taken by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, who he said is playing a very positive role which Israel appreciates, but Hamas does not.
