"Israel's security is also our security, in the whole of the Western world," Quartet Middle East envoy Tony Blair said on Wednesday.

Speaking at the President's Conference opening plenary panel with President Shimon Peres and Rahman Emanuel, Blair said that it is worth trying to solve Israeli Palestinian conflict, as it is important for Israel's security as well as the security of the "whole of the Western world."

Emmanuel contributed, saying that within the conflict, there is too much focus on process of peace, and "not enough on the benefits [of peace]."

"Focus on the benefits, and the process will follow," the former White House chief of staff under US President Barack Obama stated.
