Susan Rice: Use Ceasefire to Begin to Solve the Crisis


President Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, said that it is important to take advantage of the current ceasefire in order to begin to solve the crisis in Gaza. “It is important that the ceasefire continue, as there has been great suffering in both Israel and Gaza. We are hopeful but are aware of the fact that ceasefires have not held out for long in the past,” Rice told NBC.

Rice added that “It is important that both sides are committed to the ceasefire and it is even more important that this opportunity is taken advantage of in order to begin contacts we are working so hard at.”
