Tony Blair welcomes publication of Gaza item list

Quartet representative and former UK prime minister Tony Blair commented on Israel's publication of the controlled item list for Gaza, saying "I welcome the Government’s publication of the list, which comes just two weeks after its decision to liberalize the Gaza policy. This list is a significant milestone."
Blair went on to say “these changes are significant and, once implemented, should have a dramatic influence on the daily lives of the people of Gaza and on the private sector."
He also called for the release of Gilat Schalit, promising to "redouble...efforts to secure his freedom."
