British newspapers said Saturday that Prime Minister Gordon Brown will soon appoint his own Middle East envoy, but 10 Downing St. dismissed the reports as "speculation." Brown recently replaced Tony Blair as Britain's prime minister, and ordinarily Brown's appointment of a new British Middle East envoy to replace the outgoing one, Lord Levy, would attract little attention. But soon after leaving office Blair was appointed as the new Middle East envoy for the international Quartet, made up of the United States, the European Union, the United Nations and Russia. This led The Guardian and The London Times to predict on Saturday that Brown's appointment for Britain's Middle East envoy could clash with Blair as they both try to achieve their goals with Israeli and Palestinian Authority officials.
