BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Italian Foreign Affairs Minister Giulio Terzi has asked EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and others to reopen the EU Border Assistance Mission to Gaza, officials said Monday.

The Italian foreign ministry said in a note posted on its website that the mission should be speedily reactivated in order to help maintain the truce between Israel and groups in the Gaza Strip.

Other international means should be applied in addition to EUBAM to prevent Hamas from rearming through the tunnels, the online statement said, adding that the presence would boost development.

The note called on Ashton to convene a meeting of the international "Quartet" of states to relaunch the peace process "by the end of January," as US President Barack Obama starts his second term.

By the end of Januaray!!!! Does it take more than two months to start peace talks considering that they have been going on for decades. If it's not the US elections it is Israel's. What a plawa. Every thing comes to a halt for one year when US elections take place and now Israel's. One excuse after another when it comes to Palestine and anyway why should it depend on US alone who is a biased mediator as we all know. US loosing its influence in the region plus they are bankrupt.

To AKeenReader #1: 'By the end of Januaray!!!! Does it take more than two months to start...' Indeed. But it's one more inch. It's been sixty five years so far -- it'll be another fifteen. But most of the battle's won. Israel's basically committing suicide -- and there's no reason to think she'll be able to reverse course.
