Shortly after the release of a statement by the EU foreign ministers on Gaza, Israel's Foreign Ministry released its own statement on Friday night stating that Israel, like the EU, views as important the Egyptian initiative to try to achieve a long-term cease-fire to the Gaza hostilities.

The ministry said that it welcomed the EU ministers repeated calls for the terror organizations in Gaza to disarm.

"Dedication to the principle of demilitarization that will be enforced by an effective mechanism, will ensure  that the situation in Gaza is changed from its foundation. Israel will continue to carry on a dialogue with the European Union on these important questions," the ministry's statement declared.
