Moratinos: Road Map is dead

Monday, November 06, 2006 |  by Staff Writer
In an interview with the Italian newspaper, Il Riformista, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Moratinos declared, “The Road Map is dead.”

The Road Map, launched in 2003, envisioned a Palestinian state alongside an Israeli state, but stalled due to terror and lack of commitments.

Moratinos also said that the conflict between the Israelis and Arabs has led to feelings of deep frustration in all the Middle East. “There is no strength in the Road Map to bring an answer to these disagreements,” he claimed.

Moratinos indicated that no phase of the Road Map has been implemented and therefore, “we need to bring other proposals to the table.” Moratinos advocates a second Madrid Conference where all countries would be invited and where Arab countries and Israel could be involved in the renewal of the peace process.
