There is "new momentum" in the Middle East peace process, a high-ranking European Union official said after meeting the UN secretary-general. EU External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner pointed to the recent Arab League peace initiative, the formation of a Palestinian national unity government including Hamas and Fatah, and regular meetings between Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. "I think the recent developments ... have brought indeed a new momentum to this peace process," she said Friday. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Ferrero-Waldner discussed these developments and the next meeting of the Quartet, the international group comprising the UN, the US, the EU and Russia that produced the stalled roadmap to Israeli-Palestinian peace culminating with statehood for the Palestinians.
